Last week, National Surrogacy Week 2022 focused on the children born through UK surrogacy. Their stories and their voices. Often or not, we focus on the parents and their desire to welcome a new addition or additions into their family. Equally, it is important to hear how children who have been born through surrogacy feel too
For many families suffering from fertility issues, surrogacy is a potential route here in the UK. It is legal, but it comes with challenges. Surrogacy is also available to both singles and couples.
You may choose a surrogate based in the UK or a surrogate who is based overseas for example the USA where surrogacy is more easily available. Either way, there are many legal aspects to consider which is why our family team are on hand to help and guidance on surrogacy and the law.

The Law Commission is expected to publish its recommendations for reform of the law on surrogacy later this year in September 2022 where we look forward to updating you all.
