We frequently assist parents with the immigration and nationality matters which arise when children are born following international surrogacy arrangements.
We are aware that the coronavirus covid-19 crisis is causing difficulties for parents whose children are born overseas to surrogate mothers.
We have, with our friends at NGA Law, raised this matter with the Home Secretary. The Home Office have been in contact with us to look to find solutions for children who are born British and those who need to register as British Citizens.
I will update when I have further information but you are welcome to contact me on firstname.lastname@example.org
