NGA has been quoted in today’s Telegraph, on the case of Kyle Casson, the single dad through surrogacy who was granted an adoption order to secure his legal parenthood. Natalie was quoted about the law’s failure to allow single parents to apply for parental orders.
For Natalie Gamble the only issue raised by the Cassons’ case is a legal one.
“UK law does not allow singles, like the son [Kyle] in this case, to apply for a parental order, or birth certificate; so the young man had to apply for an adoption order instead.”
Gamble is campaigning to change the law, which she feels condemns children to forfeit “a UK birth certificate which reflects their true parentage, and instead must either become adopted children, or live in limbo without resolved legal status”.
