Re A & L (Children) 
14th August 2013
Andrew Powell represented the same sex applicants Re A & L (Children)  EWHC 2328 (Fam) (instructed by Dawson Cornwell) before Mrs Justice Theis.
The case concerned a same sex couple who sought parental orders where the surrogate was acting altruistically in California. The court took the view that in such circumstances it needed to adopt a more holistic approach in scrutinising the wider payments in the case, which also included payments made to the surrogacy agency.
