Surrogacy Law Assistance in South Africa

Adele van der Walt Incorporated is a medical law firm in South Africa under leadership of Adele van der Walt, a well-known authority on legal aspects of surrogacy in the country. With South African laws differing from other countries regarding surrogacy, it is imperative to obtain expert legal advice on aspects such as:

  • Finding a surrogate
  • Requirements for becoming a surrogate
  • Minimum requirements for commissioning parents
  • Rights of the child
  • Parental rights
  • Court application process
  • Ethical issues
  • Right to compensation
  • Right to pregnancy termination

  • Common pitfalls to avoid
  • Emotional aspects

We understand the emotional and legal aspects surrounding surrogacy and also understand the desire of commissioning parents to have a child of their own. However, with it being a complex process, it is essential to have legal expertise at hand to guide you through the process, whether as commissioning parents or as a surrogate mother.

Our service offering includes:

  • Legal advice
  • Legal assistance
  • Setting up surrogacy agreements
  • Reviewing existing agreements
  • Collecting and reviewing supporting documents
  • Applying for confirmation from the High Court
  • Handling of disputes
  • Interpretation of the Children s Act No. 38 of 2005

We provide legal assistance throughout the process of surrogacy, helping you to understand legal implications of issues which may arise such as twins being the result of fertilisation when the parents only made provision for one child or the right of the surrogate to terminate pregnancy for medical reasons. It is imperative to understand what type of compensation is allowed and what the law implies regarding altruistic surrogacy.
