Louisa Ghevaert is delighted to contribute a specialist chapter on surrogacy law to leading practitioner textbook The International Family Law Practice Sixth Edition 2021. This newly updated reference work provides comprehensive coverage of the international elements of English Family Law and relevant source material. Increasing globalisation and international movement of parents, children and families, combined with rapid changes and legal developments means that complex international legal and practical issues frequently arise in practice.
The International Family Law Practice addresses the implications of the UK’s final departure from the EU, along with specialist chapters dealing with key topics such as recognition of foreign marriages and divorce, financial provision after an overseas divorce, marital agreements, child abduction, child relocation, surrogacy, international adoption, enforcement, immigration issues and forced marriage.
“It has been interesting to see how surrogacy and assisted reproduction law and practice has developed over the last few years in the UK and internationally and how many of the legal cases I have had the privilege to deal with have helped to shape and improve outcomes for intended parents, surrogates, children and families. That said, further reform of surrogacy law is still needed in the UK along with wider fertility law reform given the rapidly evolving landscape and ongoing advances in science, genomics, technology, digital services and societies across the world. Thank you to LexisNexis, Professor David Hodson OBE and co-authors for this indispensable guide in what remains a rapidly evolving and complex area of law and practice.”
