This webinar gives an outline of the relevant legal framework in surrogacy cases, and how intended parents can achieve status as parents through parental orders.

The webinar will deal with how to assist in preparing the application for a parental order, what to include within the intended parent(s) witness statement and how to make sure the relevant criteria is met. It will also address what happens in cases where the criteria for a parental order is not met and a parental order is not made.

This webinar will also explore the Law Commission’s final recommendations for UK surrogacy law reform and how this will impact upon practice if made into law.
