Surrogacy Solicitors

Surrogacy Solicitors & Lawyers

Our specialist Surrogacy Solicitors can advise you through the process and the law relating to surrogacy arrangements.

To speak to a Surrogacy solicitor for expert advice you can trust, please call Goodman Ray Solicitors on 020 7608 1227 or contact us online and we will call you.

Surrogacy is an arrangement between two people who want to parent a child and a woman who agrees to carry and give birth to that child. Under English law the surrogate mother remains the legal mother, wherever the child was conceived and/or born, unless orders are made to the contrary by the court. These orders are known as “parental orders”. They give the intended parents legal parental rights and ends those of the surrogate mother. Once a parental order is made a new birth certificate naming the intended parents will be issued to replace the first birth certificate.

These arrangements can be very complex and you should always seek specialist legal advice, ideally in advance of entering into any agreements.

Our specialist Surrogacy Solicitors can advise you through the process and the law relating to surrogacy arrangements.
