Surrogacy and Assisted Reproduction

Making the decision to have a child is a huge moment in anyone’s life. It can be emotional and challenging where there are difficulties in conceiving or carrying a child, and the legal implications of assisted family formation can be complex, both around the child’s birth and during its life.

How Can We Help You?

We can advise you on all the legal implications for the intended parents, surrogates or donors, including:

  • Legal advice on surrogacy planning
  • Obtaining parental orders (or alternatives)
  • Surrogacy or co-parenting disputes

Where there is an international element, either because the surrogate or donor is abroad, or you are a foreign national, you will need to consider how to bring the child to the UK without delay, and what your rights as an intended parent are.

We can help you obtain the relevant orders in the UK to secure your legal status as the child’s parents. We can also help with arrangements for children who have been conceived by assisted reproduction where there is a dispute about their care or who they spend their time with.

You may also need advice on your employment rights or changing your Will as a result of surrogacy arrangements, and we work with specialists across the firm to provide this assistance.
