Parental Order evidence

I 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 you. 

2 The application must be made no later than 6 months after the birthThis deadline has been extended in some cases but you must not rely on this to delay your application. 

The child must be living with you.

At least one of you must be domiciled in England.

5 You both must be over 18.

6 There must be consent from the surrogate and her husband/Partner in the required form at the required time.

7 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.

If there is no biological connection, you will be advised about adoption options.

I provide legal advice on surrogacy based on the law in England and Wales.

I have acted for clients working with many agencies across the world.  I will not recommend any surrogacy provider, destination, agency or clinic.   If my advice concludes that you can become legal parents following the arrangement you are considering, it should not be taken as advice to proceed.  If I have acted for couples who have entered into similar arrangements, you should not take that as advice to proceed.   You must always do your own due diligence on any agency / destination.  A successful arrangement for someone else won’t always mean a successful arrangement for you.  I will not take part in any negotiations for your surrogacy arrangement nor, will I review your surrogacy contract.
