A surrogacy arrangement means an arrangement for a woman (the birth mother) to seek to become pregnant and give birth to a child and for a person or persons other than the birth mother (the arranged parent or arranged parents) to raise the child. Surrogacy arrangements are complex and involve medical, emotional, financial and legal issues. Legal advice needs to be obtained to see if it is possible for a surrogacy arrangement to be made well before a proposed birth mother becomes pregnant.

DCH Legal Group have experience in surrogacy agreements and parentage orders, and provided all the complex steps are taken, will be able to ensure that you meet the legal requirements to obtain parentage orders, or other ancillary orders, in the Family Court of Western Australia.
