AB 891 – Clarifies That A Representation By A Minor That The Minor’s Parent Or Legal Guardian Has Consented Is Not Sufficient To Obtain Parental Consent For Contract Formation Purposes
Assembly Bill 891 (AB 891) provides that a representation by a minor that the minor’s parent or legal guardian has consented shall not be considered to be consent for purposes of contract formation. The bill is intended to address circumstances where parental consent is required before a company may interact with a minor online or enter into binding contracts with a minor, and parental consent is obtained by having the minor affirm that the minor’s parent consented. Instead, this bill attempts to make clear that the consent must be obtained directly from a parent.
(AB 891 adds Section 1568.5 to the Civil Code.)
