We’re delighted that International Family Law Journal recently published an article by Louisa Ghevaert and barrister Ruth Cabeza entitled “Surrogacy, egg donation and assisted reproduction: payments and the conflict of law and policy”. The article highlights the English Court’s redefined approach to international surrogacy, egg donation, payments and assisted reproduction following our successful representation of the intended parents in the published case of Re C .
Re C concerned an international parental order application by British intended parents who had entered into a commercial surrogacy arrangement in the US state of California. The case demonstrates the English Court’s robust approach to the emerging legal issues created by assisted reproduction and surrogacy and its continued role in ensuring there has been no abuse of UK public policy. It also makes clear that the English Court will now scrutinise all aspects of the surrogacy arrangement and that it will require complete transparency and detailed disclosure in these cases.
