Surrogacy Agreements

A surrogacy agreement is not enforceable in the UK.

I do not and cannot advise on the terms of a surrogacy agreement in the UK or abroad.  No lawyer in the UK is permitted to do this.  A surrogacy agreement may be very helpful in that it states clearly what your intentions are however, please be advised that neither of you can be held to any of the terms.

I am aware of a large and growing underground surrogacy world in the UK where money may be exchanging hands for gametes and a surrogacy arrangement.  Whilst I accept that this is largely due to the lack of legal framework and failure of the UK legal system to protect IP’s and surrogates, I advise that you exercise extreme caution in taking part in such arrangements.

There are several cases that I have acted on where these types of arrangements have resulted in disagreements.

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.
