NSW Surrogacy Act review
The NSW Department of Justice is currently reviewing the Surrogacy Act in that state, with specific attention to the existing restrictions on advertising for surrogates, and the time currently taken to process parentage transfers. If amendments were made to permit advertising and reduce the time taken to finalise parentage transfers these changes would go a very long way to improving the situation for both intending parents and surrogates.
It would be fantastic to see a similar legislative review in Queensland in the near future. It would be even better to see consistent legislation across all states, in order to reduce the confusion and distress for people trying to commence/extend their family through surrogacy.
