Surrogacy & Fertility Legal Services
What You Need to Know
Often dictated by a legal agreement, surrogacy helps people who cannot have children to become legal parents. In the UK, the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Act 2008 governs and regulates the terms of surrogacy.
The woman who gives birth to the child will have legal rights over the kid unless you procure a parental order.
The HFEA 2008 is applicable regardless of the country or jurisdiction the surrogacy is carried out. Without a parental order, the woman who gives birth will be deemed as the legal parent.
Only a parental order can help you legally acquire the right to be the parent of a surrogate child. It is important to note that a foreign birth certificate is not considered as adequate evidence of legal parental status in the UK.
How Can We Help?
At Osbourne Pinner, we use our extensive knowledge of the HFEA 2008 and our experience to help our clients throughout the surrogacy process.
- Knowledge of all the national and international rules and regulations
- Help our clients secure parental rights over their children
- Provide our clients with appropriate advice
- Help our clients prepare all the necessary documentation
Furthermore, we help you understand that foreign documentation and birth certificates do not constitute as evidence of legal parentage in the UK.
