In some places (apparently, for instance, California, India and Ukraine) the intended parents are also the legal parents by operation of law arising from the surrogacy agreement. This may be recognised in some countries, but it seems so far English law does not recognise this. This can cause severe problems, especially when the surrogate is married or in a civil partnership.

The twins were therefore legally stateless and parentless. The situation could only be regulated after costly and lengthy court proceedings.

As a result many UK couples and single people who are planning a TEEN through surrogacy are looking abroad to countries where commercial surrogacy is legal. This area of law is already complex and it gets even more complicated when international family law and immigration law of two or more different countries come together.
