In some countries, it is necessary to have a Will which covers specific issues with the surrogacy arrangements in order to proceed. We have experience of assisting intended parents with this, and will be able to help you prepare a Will for this purpose.

Under English law, if you have a child with a surrogate mother you and your partner will not be the child’s legal parents. You will need to ask the court to make a parental order which will extinguish the surrogate mother’s (and her husband’s if she is married) parentage and transfer the rights and responsibilities for your child to you.
With international surrogacy arrangements, the child will often have no automatic claim to British nationality, regardless of your nationalities. So, this will mean that additional steps need to be taken before you can bring your child home.
It is important that you understand early on what the legal requirements are and what steps you need to take here and in the country in which your child is born. Our expert team will support you through the important steps and advise on the best options to bring your child home as quickly as possible.
