Navigating surrogacy in Victoria – an introductory guide to the legal issues

Navigating the world of parenting can be hard at the best of times. Add surrogacy into that mix and a whole new GPS is needed! Nicholes Family Lawyers have spent decades helping families of all shapes, sizes, and backgrounds map and overcome the hurdles in surrogacy (in Australia and abroad).

In this webinar, we will cover the regulatory and legal framework underpinning surrogacy in Victoria, the risks, and the practical steps you need to plan for and take whether you are prospective parents, donors or surrogates.

Topics covered:

  • Legal and regulatory issues (such as the different kinds of surrogacy, eligibility and the differences between choosing Australian and overseas options)
  • Practical advice on how to manage the legal complexities around surrogacy (for example, access to the child, privacy, medical records, passports, etc.)
  • Sharing stories of what we have learned along the way about surviving the journey – including providing guidance on support groups you can tap into for information and advice
  • Highlighting the risks and share some ideas about how to resolve them
