The decision to start a family is always an overwhelming one. Is this the right time? Can we afford a baby? Will we be good parents? It becomes even more daunting when it involves potential fertility treatment or surrogacy.

The decision to proceed with fertility treatment or surrogacy needs to be considered carefully and with a full understanding of the options, law and costs involved. There is without a doubt a lot to consider and think about and this can often leave intended parents confused, overwhelmed and not sure where to turn for help.

Fertility law encompasses a whole range of services from fertility treatment, donor eggs or sperm, or surrogacy. Please visit for full details.

Proceeding with any form of assisted conception may not be right for everyone and if it is not properly researched it can lead to outcomes that were certainly never intended. For example in a case of international surrogacy if the intended parents do not apply for a parental order upon their return to the UK the surrogate and her spouse will remain the legal parents of the child irrespective of any order made in the country of birth.

This makes understanding the legal issues surrounding any decision very important.

We want you to feel comfortable enough to talk to us openly about your situation and ask any questions that you may have.  We also strive to give you the confidence to make informed decisions about the right way to build your family.
