Where consent is required, is consent of both parents required?

Yes, unless the parents are divorced and the custody and control are placed in one parent, then only the parent having such custody and control shall be required to give the written consent. All written consents must be acknowledged (notarized). If the parents have been granted shared parental responsibility, both parents must sign.
