Alternative Family Law
For many couples, planning their family is a natural next step in their relationship. But if you’re a same sex couple, single parent and or conceiving using a donor, things are often not as straightforward.
Luckily the UK is one of the most progressive countries in the world when it comes to assisted conception and fertility law, meaning that you have plenty of options when it comes to creating and protecting your unique family.
If you’re planning a family through surrogacy, adoption or with the help of a donor, speak to our fertility law specialists for expert, individual advice. We understand the complexities of modern fertility law and can offer support and guidance throughout the process – whilst also working to protect your interests.
Or if your relationship has broken down, we can help you formally end it – through divorce or civil partnership dissolution. We can also help you resolve issues related to finances, children and co-parenting.
Fertility law can be complex and we always recommend that you speak to a specialist family lawyer. This is particularly true if you’re considering surrogacy, becoming a surrogate or conceiving a child using a donor.
In some areas of family law, we offer a complimentary introductory meeting with a member of our family law team. This 30-minute meeting is designed for you to get to know your solicitor and to discuss your options.
If specific advice is required and you’d like to continue past the 30 minutes, please let your solicitor know and you may be able to carry on into a more detailed consultation. This time will be chargeable, but your solicitor will tell you how much it will be.
