It is very important that you obtain legal advice from surrogacy solicitors if you are considering a surrogacy arrangement as, despite what the law may be in the country where your surrogate is, in the UK the legal mother will always be the surrogate and if the surrogate mother is married her partner will be the second legal parent.
Our surrogacy solicitors can assist you in changing that so that you become the legal parents and the surrogate’s legal status is extinguished. If your baby is conceived abroad, we can also help you with immigration law as you may need special entry clearance to bring your baby back into the UK following the surrogacy arrangement.
We are aware that surrogacy arrangements can be expensive and our solicitors work with our clients to agree a fixed fee service to suit them, be that full representation until the parental order is obtained or by assisting them in preparing their case so that they feel confident to represent themselves at court hearings.
