Pink Parenting magazine features an article by me in its September/October 2011 issue on navigating the legal pitfalls associated with international surrogacy.
This issue of Pink Parenting also covers 10 steps to adoption, an article on sex selection of babies and an interview with actress Cynthia Nixon on her same-sex parenting journey. It further includes an article explaining one couple’s emotional fostering journey, www.pink-parenting.com.
International surrogacy raises complex legal issues and there are many legal pitfalls. It is important to ensure you can travel home safely with your baby after the birth and obtain the necessary travel papers to achieve this. Intended parents also need to secure their legal status as parents in the UK after the birth through a post birth legal process known as a parental order application.
