Adoption and Fertility

Advances in fertility technology are changing the way we think about growing families.

Assisted reproduction, egg and sperm donation, surrogacy and adoption, either within England or internationally, are alternatives to which many prospective parents turn if they cannot conceive naturally.

A biological link with a child does not necessarily mean that a person will automatically acquire parental rights. If someone travels abroad for treatment, or to adopt, they can find that even though they and their partner are parents under the law of the other country, they may not be parents in the eyes of English law.

That can have serious consequences when bringing a new family member home, so taking high quality specialist family law advice at an early stage is essential. We can help you create a plan and implement it to build the family you have always wanted.
