Unconfirmed parent status means that your transaction contains one or more inputs which were not confirmed by the miners. You can either wait or increase significantly the fee of your transaction so that you could take advantage of Child Pays For Parent. Keep in mind that not all miners support CPFP.

"Unconfirmed parent" means that the transaction funding the transaction hasn't confirmed yet.


If you are receiving this transaction, then wait for it to confirm.

If you are sending a transaction that is not time-critical, you can also wait.

If you are sending a transaction that is also time-critical, follow BitCryptex's suggestion and increase the fee (you should be able to do so by right-clicking on the affected transaction within your transaction history).

Please note that you won't be able to increase the fee if you use old version of Electrum. RBF (replace-by-fee) is turned on by default since the Electrum 3.1.0 which was released somewhere in March. In such case, updating Electrum won't help because the transaction has been already broadcasted.

According to the documentation on the Electrum FAQ you would have needed to checked “Replaceable” on the send tab before sending the transaction. If this is enabled by default now (I can't check right now but I've it is before) then you just create a child pays for payment which is using a different address to pay for the fee of another address. This would require you to have some left over balance obviously.

To create a CPFP transaction just right click on the unconfirmed transaction that is in your history tab and choose “Child pays for parent”. Set a fee which will get it confirmed in the time span you want. There's many places you can check the current network fees and get a good idea how long it will take to confirm. Then click on “ok”. A window will popup and you just have to click on "sign" and then "broadcast"

This should then get your existing transaction to use the child pays for payment fee and get it confirmed quicker for you.

You don't need to check replaceable to do CPFP. CPFP only requires that you control one of the output addresses. RBF, which is another way to bump the fee, requires that you mark a tx replaceable. Yes the default is for all transactions to be marked replaceable.
