The Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) have launched a campaign to encourage prospective parents to seek professional legal advice before entering into surrogacy arrangements abroad.

Many of these couples will seek help and advice from the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO). 

The FCO has launched new guidance to give these parents information about the process ( to help inform them of the sort of issues they may face when embarking on a surrogacy arrangement in a foreign country.
