N (Adoption – Surrogacy), Re [2024] EWFC 41

Sharon Segal, instructed by Osbornes Law, acted on behalf of the applicants in their successful application for an adoption order in respect of an 18-year-old, born as a result of a surrogacy agreement. The applicants were the intended parents pursuant to that surrogacy agreement.

This is the first reported decision where, in the context of a surrogacy, the birth parents’ consent to an adoption order has been dispensed with on welfare grounds. See the full judgment in Re N (Adoption: Surrogacy) [2024] EWFC 41 via the link below.
