Surrogacy arrangements are usually entered into with care and forethought by all parties. It is unusual for a surrogacy arrangement to fall into dispute or for difficulties to arise.

If a dispute or difficulties arise, the English Family Court has wide ranging powers to resolve the situation.  It will consider the circumstances carefully and make a decision in the best interests of the surrogate born child.

We have leading expertise in resolving surrogacy difficulties and disputes successfully and we provide sensitive pragmatic and expert legal advice on:

  • managing a surrogacy dispute in practice
  • surrogacy law in the UK
  • acquisition of legal parenthood for a surrogate born child
  • acquisition and exercise of parental responsibility for a surrogate born child
  • representation in court proceedings to acquire legal status for a surrogate born child
  • children law in the UK
