NGA in the Law Society Gazette on today’s law change for single parents

January 9, 2019

The Law Society Gazette have covered today’s law change to include single parents in UK surrogacy law.  Speaking to NGA Law, the Law Society Gazette wrote:

The change has been welcomed by Burgate and London firm Natalie Gamble Associates, whose work to challenge UK surrogacy law on discrimination grounds resulted in the president of the family division declaring in May 2016 that the law was incompatible with human rights principles. The firm’s founder, Natalie Gamble, told the Gazette: ‘The law has never made it illegal for single parents to conceive through surrogacy, but the fact that parental orders have been unavailable until now has left them and their children in legal limbo, trapped in a black hole where they are caring for their children without formal legal status as parents.  ‘The law change means that single mothers and fathers who have children through surrogacy will no longer be discriminated against, and will have the same rights as couples to obtain birth certificates, secure legal parenthood, British nationality for their children and employment rights after their child is born.‘  Read more
