Modern Parenting

Creating a family...

...can be done in many different ways. With surrogacy, egg and sperm donation, co-parenting and adoption available, you need to be clear on what your options are so you can make an informed decision.

We have a wealth of experience in advising and representing clients from all walks of life and with all sorts of differing circumstances on their journey to parenthood. You can rest assured that you will receive clear, concise and non-judgemental advice to help guide you to achieving your dream of a family.

We are experienced in parenting and fertility law, having helped to create many families of all shapes and sizes. We understand that you may feel overwhelmed by all the information made available to you, as the law is complex, applying very strictly to specific circumstances. Whether you are a heterosexual couple, in a same sex relationship or single, we can sit down with you to discuss the different routes available to you to help you start your family. We sincerely hope that you will then be able to make an informed choice, moving forwards on your journey to parenthood.
