UK LEGALITIES............

This is an open query to all those in SURROGACY WORLD......

Here it goes:

Same Sex Relationships are not recognized in Indian law; therefore in our situation the surrogacy agreement will be between one of us as a single male and the surrogate who so happens to be a widow. (This help with automatic citizenship for the newborn, as the surrogate has no husband, meaning that one of us will be deemed the biological father, therefore giving the baby right to British Citizenship). Under UK Law the Surrogate Mother is deemed the Legal Mother; however under Indian Law the Surrogate Mother is not deemed as the Legal Mother. As a result of the Indian Law, only the Fathers name will appear on the baby's birth certificate.

Question for anyone that has been this route before:

What would be the process for registering the child birth with the British High Commission and also making application for a British Passport if the surrogate mothers name is absent on the Indian birth certificate?

I know that the UK Law is changing on April 6th, 2010 which will then allow two male parents to be shown on a child's birth certificate, but in the meantime I am trying to see if anyone has info.

Thank you!!


  1. You guys will fall into the new regulations though correct?

  2. Let's call it biological colonialism in reverse: Chinese couples are using IVF and rented American wombs to make new US citizens when the baby is born here. From the Global Times story: West Coast Surrogacy, in California, has worked with. If you are thinking to go INDIA for IVF surrogacy, then you must search for Surrogacy India, Surrogate mother India, IVF India, IVF clinic India & IVF cost india. I found Go Surrogacy for this treatment in India. Hope you also like these.
