About this course
This course was last updated in July 2020.
Recent years have seen an increase in international surrogacy arrangements, under which citizens or residents of the UK who are unable to conceive pay someone in a foreign country to carry and give birth to their child. The process can bring enormous joy to childless families, but comes with considerable legal complications — including the immigration status and citizenship of a child born abroad to a foreign birth mother. As a result, careful planning is needed on the immigration side to ensure that intended parents are able to bring their child back to the UK after the birth.
This course, written by experienced solicitor Karma Hickman, goes through the legal and practical implications of international surrogacy. It contains dozens of case studies and worked examples and is suitable for experienced practitioners seeking to gain detailed knowledge about this topic. You can check out the course contents below.
