Fertility law

For individuals and couples looking to grow their family

Clear and supportive advice

Thanks to advancements in science, there are a number of ways of achieving parenthood, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, marital status, or fertility circumstances. In addition to surrogacy, families are seeking to use donor gametes (either sperm or eggs) and frozen embryos or seeking co-parents.

Fertility Law is at the cutting edge of legal practice. It is complex and technical and can apply in a variety of different circumstances. Our specialist children solicitors can advise on the legal implications of assisted conception, issues of consent and the legal status of biological and non-biological parents.

Understanding your rights

Before proceeding with fertility treatment, there are various legal aspects that warrant consideration. These encompass issues related to legal parenthood, the consent of partners and donors, as well as your parental rights and responsibilities. Given the intricacy of these concepts, working with a specialist in family law is highly recommended to guide you through this process.
