How easy is surrogacy in the UK?

By Sara Salgado.
Last Update: 01/16/2018

Actually, surrogacy is not easy in the United Kingdom. The fact that the law does not enforce surrogacy agreements, along with the fact that the surrogate will be considered the legal mother regardless of whether you have signed deal with her complicates the process to a large extent.

The key step lies in the application for a parental order within 6 months after the birth: skipping this crucial step would mean that you will not ever be considered the legal parents.
