Surrogacy

Law, Practice and Policy in England and Wales

£65.00

This specialist title sets out the law, procedure and policy relating to assisted reproduction and surrogacy in a practical and accessible format whilst including, where appropriate and with examples, detailed analysis.

Paperback i

Book printed softcover

£65.00
The last few years have seen a huge increase in the number of reported decisions concerning surrogacy arrangements, single parent adoptions in a surrogacy or assisted reproduction (AR) context, and private law children disputes in cases with a factual matrix centered on surrogacy or AR. Connected with this trend is the equally large number of reported judgments warning potential parents, lawyers and clinics, of the significant pitfalls and consequences of not following the appropriate legal framework.

This specialist title sets out the law, procedure and policy relating to assisted reproduction and surrogacy in a practical and accessible format whilst including, where appropriate and with examples, detailed analysis. It enables the reader to identify who the parents of a child are when that child is born, who has parental responsibility for that child and how a person who does not automatically share parental responsibility with the mother can apply for it. It also sets out how legal parenthood can be transferred by agreement from the legal parents at birth to new parents by way of a parental order.

The book also uniquely looks at clinics in the UK, and the regulatory framework for them.
