Parental Order evidence
We can advise you on the Parental Order evidence required. In order to secure a Parental Order, the following conditions must be satisfied under s.54 of the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Act 2008 (HFEA) :-
1 The conception must have been artificial and at least one of you must be biologically connected. The child must have been carried by a woman who is not one of the applicants.
2 You must be married, in a civil partnership or, in an enduring relationship.
3 The application must be made no later than 6 months after the birth. This deadline has been extended in some cases but you must not rely on this to delay your application.
4 The child must be living with you.
5 At least one of you must be domiciled in England.
6 You both must be over 18.
7 There must be consent from the surrogate and her husband/Partner in the required form at the required time.
8 No money or other benefit (other than expenses reasonably incurred) should be paid to the surrogate directly or indirectly.
The order must be in the best interests of the child.
