Surrogacy in India still tricky for Many
This week Great Britain again issued a caution for couples considering surrogacy in India. It can be a troubling place to begin a surrogacy, especially with all of the legal machinations that can result from not thoroughly researching your options. Many enter into surrogacy in India believing there will be no issues returning to their home country with the baby, and enter into arrangements without thoroughly researching the conditions of the Carrier Mothers. This can result in a baby trapped in India, and great expense spent in trying to figure things out after the case.
We are thoroughly versed in International Surrogacy, and recommend a free consultation before beginning any surrogacy program so that we can demonstrate the benefits of Surrogacy in the United states with a reputable, thoroughly experienced agency. We will be attending the Family and Parenting Alternative show in Great Britain in September, and we will be offering free consultations during the week we are there visiting. Please contact us to schedule a consultation now, as our spots are already filling up this fare in advance. We look forward to meeting many more British clients on our visit in September.
BRITONS TOLD TO RESEARCH BEFORE BEGINNING SURROGACY
Britons have been asked to take legal advice and research various issues about nationality and visa requirements before entering into surrogacy arrangements in India, which is one of the favourite destinations of prospective parents.
The Foreign Office on Tuesday issued detailed guidance for Britons considering surrogacy in India and other popular destinations such as the United States, Ukraine and Georgia. It includes details of the mandatory requirements for surrogacy in India.
The Foreign Office said UK missions abroad were dealing with an increasing number of people seeking international surrogacy as an alternative route to parenthood. Surrogacy arrangements can be a “long and complex process”, it said.
The process for getting a child born from surrogate mother back to the UK can be complicated, can take several months to complete and may vary depending on whether the surrogate mother is married.
Daisy Organ, children’s policy advisor at the Foreign Office said: “Many couples are choosing to enter into surrogacy arrangements overseas to build and grow their family. The legal processes around international surrogacy are complicated and the procedure for getting passports and confirming nationality for the child can be complex and take a long time”.
