Surrogacy Laws – Time for Change

“Family dynamics have changed over the years and so the law needs changing”.

Our specialist family law solicitor Leah Rhydderch has recently appeared on both S4C Newyddion 9 and BBC Radio Cymru discussing the laws surrounding surrogacy.

Leah was approached to discuss the topic after a story was released concerning a 55 year old woman acting as a surrogate for her daughter.  The law, as it currently stands, means there is a lengthy, complex and costly legal process following the birth of the child.  Leah has agreed with critics that the law is outdated and needs to be brought in line with the change in family dynamics over recent years.

Leah Rhydderch is a native welsh speaking lawyer based within the Family Team at Watkins & Gunn.  She specialises in a range of family law matters and can be contacted on 01633 240749.
