Tiptoe through the minefield: A State by State comparison of surrogacy laws in Australia – Stephen Page and Alexandra Harland
Surrogacy has received a lot of attention in recent years with all States undertaking Parliamentary inquiries and most introducing various legislation. This article looks at the changes to surrogacy laws and compares the State surrogacy regimes. It also looks at some of the recent cases which have been published in circumstances where couples are not able to access parentage transfer provisions in the State provisions. The complexities and inconsistencies in the State provisions will lead to confusion and people breaching State provisions. In some circumstances this will amount to a criminal offence. Recent decisions of the Family Court raise questions about the citizenship of children born through international surrogacy. Much more discussion and law reform is needed.
