Here at Bindmans, we understand that there are a many different ways to create a family. The legal processes and implications can be complex, but we have expertise in obtaining parental orders for children born through surrogacy, on the law relating to sperm and egg donation and drafting co-parenting agreements. We can help you to ensure that the right people have legal parentage and parental responsibility in respect of your child.
We also have a specialist immigration team, who we work in tandem with to ensure that any immigration and nationality issues are dealt with simultaneously.
