International and National Adoption & Surrogacy

We can assist with surrogacy and adoption.  If you are considering having a child with the assistance of a surrogate mother, it is important to understand the law surrounding this.

Under New Zealand law you will not have any legal parental rights unless you adopt the child.

Therefore, you will need to apply to adopt your child through the Family Court, so the parental rights can be transferred from your surrogate mother and her partner to you.
