52.1. The director may reach an agreement on voluntary measures with only one of the parents where the other parent is deceased or is deprived of parental authority.
The director may also decide to reach such an agreement with only one of the parents where the other parent is unable to express his will or cannot be found despite serious efforts to locate him, or where the latter, having not, in fact, assumed responsibility for the care, maintenance and education of the child, abstains from becoming involved owing to indifference. Such a decision may only be taken by the director personally, and must be in writing and give reasons.
If, however, during the application of the agreement, the other parent comes forward, the director must allow that parent to present his views, following which the director may, with the consent of the parents and of the child, if 14 years of age or over, make certain changes to the agreement if it is in the interest of the child.
