Whether you are considering surrogacy or embarking on the process, then it is important that you have expert advice on your legal rights and options.
At Browell Smith & Co, we have a legal team with many years of experience in this often complex area of law to ensure that, in the end, your family is legally recognised as yours.
We can advise on the legalities of surrogacy and on applying to the courts for a Parental Order.
Whatever the solution, be it surrogacy, applications for Parental Orders or taking the route of adoption, we are able to work with you and advise on your options from beginning to end.
For more information or if you would like to speak with one of our specialist solicitors then please contact us.
When you first contact our family team, we will discuss your situation by email or telephone to explore how we can help you.
The next step is to arrange a meeting. This can be face-to-face, or by telephone or Skype. We will send you our terms of business setting out clearly our charges in writing before we meet you. We offer an initial fixed cost legal advice session to enable you to obtain quality legal advice tailored to your situation. This session will enable us to advise you on future costs, timescales and the best way to move your case forward.
We will follow up the session with written advice to you.
We are dedicated to our clients and feel that it is essential that we are up front and honest about our costs. We pride ourselves on being transparent with no hidden charges.
There are many ways that we can help you and the following cost options will be considered and agreed with you where possible:
• Fixed costs
• Full service representation
• Pay as you go/additional advice as things progress
• Assistance at Court packages to help support you if you choose to represent yourself in court
• Assistance at mediation package to help support your process at mediation
• Legal drafting of agreements reached at a fixed cost
We additionally work with litigation funding organisations who provide finance to enable you to fund a court case. We will work through the application process and explain the terms on which a loan may be offered.
You may also be able to seek a Legal Services Order from the court to secure your legal fees to be met from the other party. We will discuss with you whether this would be an appropriate course of action for you.
