Surrogacy Maternity rights

You are now entitled to surrogacy maternity rights the same as a couple who have children following adoption.    Paternity rights are also available.  This extends to time off for ante-natal appointments and applies only in cases where children are due or born after the 5th April 2015

Please see the attached link for more details: –

In order to claim these benefits, you must intend on applying for a Parental Order to become the child’s legal parents.  You will need to speak to your employers about the notice that they require from you in relation to the pregnancy.  I can provide a letter to your employer for you.

I can make your application for a Parental Order as soon as possible after the child is born.

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.
