Emma Willing on surrogacy in Citywealth

Posted on 20 August 2020

Legal Director Emma Willing has contributed to an article in Citywealth, discussing surrogacy arrangements and egg freezing.

For those based in the UK, Emma spoke about the importance of knowing UK law does not permit the enforcement of surrogacy agreements.

She said, “If a surrogate mother enters into a surrogacy agreement with intended parents, all parties are reliant on goodwill in honouring the agreement.

The surrogate mother will automatically be the child's legal mother at birth, regardless of whether or not the surrogate mother has any genetic link to the child. If the surrogate mother is married or in a civil partnership, her husband, wife or civil partner will automatically be the child's second legal parent.
