Legal parenthood can be transferred by a Parental Order after the child is born. If you use a surrogate, they will be the child’s legal parent at birth. If the surrogate is married or in a civil partnership, their spouse or civil partner will be the child’s second parent at birth, unless they did not give their permission.

Parental Orders are still a relatively new and specialist area brought into law by the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Act 2008 which makes a Parental Order a mandatory requirement in order to obtain a Birth Certificate. Most firms have not undertaken or been exposed to this type of work. We have obtained numerous Parental Orders in the High Court of London and are experienced in the processes involved and the strict criteria to be met under the 2008 Act.

The Firm has built up a strong relationship with the main hospitals and clinics in USA, Canada and Asia.

In addition, we have direct associations with local Lawyers and Notaries which enables the necessary paperwork to be completed, translated and received by both parties in a timely manner.

The firm offers a fixed fee arrangement for obtaining parental orders in the majority of cases. We believe that no other solicitors offer such fixed fee but charge on an hourly basis. There is no fee payable for the first consultation.

We have achieved a 100% success rate in obtaining a Parental Order in the High Court in every case in which we have been instructed.


We have particular expertise in the following areas:

  • Applications under the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Act 2008
  • Advice on Applications for Parental Orders
  • Approval of Surrogacy Agreements and other necessary documentation requested by Court
  • Extensive contacts with clinics in India, Cyprus and worldwide
  • 100% record of obtaining Parental Orders in the High Court
  • Fixed fee for all work undertaken up to obtaining a Parental Order

Please contact us for a free first appointment in person at our offices or remotely in order to briefly
assess your matter.
