What Does Sole Responsibility in Immigration Law Mean?

Under the UK’s sole responsibility immigration regulations, the UK sponsoring parent has sole responsibility for their child if the other parent has “abdicated or abandoned” their parental duties, leaving the UK sponsoring parent in charge of the child’s day-to-day care. This could happen if one parent dies or if a court decides to take away parental rights because of abuse or refusing to let the child get medical care.
