Modern family makeups are more common than ever, and everyone should be able to start a family with equal legal protections and assurance. However, the current law means that some parents require additional help and must take some extra steps to turn their dreams into reality.

So we are delighted to host a Routes to Parenthood seminar in our London office on Thursday 22 September, where our legal experts will discuss the range of options available for LGBTQ +, same-sex and modern families.

Subjects will include:

  • The challenges to accessing IVF on the NHS for a same-sex female couple by Connie Atkinson, Family Partner 
  • Employment rights for individuals going through fertility treatment, surrogacy, and adoption by Moira Campbell, Employment Senior Associate 
  • The immigration aspects of international surrogacy and adoption by Katie Newbury, Immigration Partner
  • Surrogacy – legal parentage, surrogacy, and the parental order process by Connie Atkinson, Family Partner 
  • The legal aspects of adoption by Jade Quirke, Associate Solicitor at Russell-Cooke Solicitors and specialist in children, fertility, adoption, and surrogacy law
  • The modern family – University research on the impact of new family forms on parenting and child development by Dr Vasanti Jadva, Lecturer in Reproductive Science, MSc Programme Director, Reproductive Science and Women's Health, Institute for Women's Health | Faculty of Popu​lation Health Sciences University College London

There will be an opportunity to ask questions after the session and mingle with the guests during the drinks reception that will follow.
