Re. D and L (Minors Surrogacy) EWHC 2631 (Fam) (28.09.2012)

The court considered the 2010 regulations in a case where male civil partners sought a parental order in circumstances where due to the Indian surrogacy clinics failure they were unable to provide the written consent of the surrogate mother 6 weeks after the birth of the relevant twin children. Cafcass were asked to intervene to assist the court. Parental Orders under s.54 were made.
