Giles Wilson Fertility Law - Where Next?

Fertility Law - Where Next? New blog by Caroline Andrews

Not a day seems to go by without a new development in fertility law. Recently, there has been press coverage of a father at the centre of Britain’s first case of paternity fraud involving IVF. A judge ruled that his former wife could not be forced to pay back tens of thousands of pounds in child maintenance, even though they were obtained as a result of fraud where she alleged he was the father of their child conceived through fertility treatment in Spain. However, it turned out the child was actually conceived through a known sperm donor. The father in the case is calling for changes to procedures to ensure they have a routine DNA test for similar cases. Similarly, a potential grandmother has been refused the ability to use her deceased’s daughter embryos to carry in effect her own grandchild.

Due to the continuous changes, the Human Embryo and Fertilisation Authority (HFEA) are undertaking constant reviews into procedures and processes; organisations such as Surrogacy UK are devising research studies to help consider the way the law is regulated.

What happens next is unclear so for independent legal advice regarding all aspects of fertility law, speak to Giles Wilson Solicitors.
