The legal parents of the child were therefore the Ukrainian couple under UK law, and the commissioning UK couple under Ukrainian law. This created problems obtaining entry clearance for the child. The Ukrainian surrogacy agency had given unduly simplistic advice.

A parental order was made pursuant to an overseas surrogacy arrangement. Caution against reliance on overseas agencies for advice.
