Re B v C (Surrogacy: Adoption)

Adoption – Order. The applicant was the biological father of a child, aged seven months, who had been born to him through surrogacy arrangements made with the applicant's mother and through a fertility clinic. The Family Court granted the order for adoption where the arrangement had been entirely lawful under the Adoption and Children Act 2002 and the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Act 2008 and where the court was satisfied that the child's lifelong welfare needs would be met by the court making the order.
