Surrogacy

We help gay dads, single parents and transgender parents to build families through surrogacy, both in the UK and overseas. The UK’s most experienced surrogacy lawyers, we offer all the UK legal services for surrogacy you need in one place, as well as practical help with both UK and international surrogacy through our sister organisation Brilliant Beginnings. Find out more about our surrogacy law services.

"As a single male to female transsexual looking to start a family through international surrogacy I always felt welcomed and supported."

Donor conception and co-parenting

We help same-sex and single parents to build families through donor conception and co-parenting (whether cisgender or trans). Whether you need help with clinic forms, putting in place a pre-conception agreement, understanding legal parenthood or navigating post-birth legal processes (including disputes and step-parent adoptions), we can help.  We also deal with international case and can help with British nationality and consular birth certificates for children born to LGBT+ parents overseas. Find out more about our donor conception and co-parenting law services.

Adoption

LGBT+ single parents and couples can adopt under UK law, irrespective of sexual orientation and gender identity. You may be adopting a child who is unrelated to you (in the UK or overseas) or you may be using adoption law to secure your connection with a child who is already a part of your family. We offer a range of adoption law advice, support and representation services to help you, and can also help with securing British nationality for your child. Find out more about our adoption law services.

Assisted reproduction

If you have stored eggs, sperm or embryos, you may need advice about the legal framework for storing them and using them in treatment.  We advise on a broad range of fertility law issues. Find out more about our assisted reproduction law services.
