An unmarried father can obtain PR in a number of ways:
1. You can marry the mother;
2. Register/re-register your child's birth with you being named on the birth certificate (if they were born after 1 December 2003);
3. By entering a Parental Responsibility Agreement with the mother;
4. Obtaining a PR order from the Court;
5. Being named as the person with whom the child lives with in a Child Arrangements Order.
