For many the process of meeting someone and starting a family is a relatively straight-forward process. For others it can be a long, difficult and emotional process.

Over the years the team has assisted many different couples in a sensitive and confidential manner as they begin their quest to start a family of their own.
Look beyond the clinic website in order to ascertain that there are no issues/problems regarding compliance with the laws in that jurisdiction.
Search to see if there have been any problems/issues with the clinic in the past and try to find out if the clinic is represented in general surrogacy articles in that country.
Join online forums/ WhatsApp groups and speak with couples who have recently dealt with the clinic you are considering. Learn about other experiences and make sure the clinic's website reflects the experiences of these couples.

The best decision we ever made was to proceed with surrogacy, the second best was working with Annette, Ger and all at Poe Kiely Hogan Lanigan Solicitors.
When we first began seeking legal advice around International Surrogacy, we spoke to a number of legal firms and researched the various family law providers as much as we could. The day we had our first encounter with Annette Hickey at PKHL was in essence, the day that we as a family decided that we would now be equipped to face that journey together. Read More
