Surrogacy has yet to be regulated in Belgium but it is already a reality in many Belgian hospitals.
It is currently a practice in many countries, some of which consider it legal.
Yet, even though surrogacy is a reality - and thus children are being born from surrogacy - the absence of a legal framework in Belgium results in problematic situations.
Before embarking on such a project, it is advisable to be very well-informed of the consequences in terms of filiation, nationality and the ways to bring a surrogate-born child to Belgium.
The unique situations which arise out of surrogacy are delicate and extremely complex. At Altea, we have solid experience in this area, both on a national as on an international level, having advised and accompanied many couples facing these issues.
Altea offers advice by expert lawyers, adapted to your personal situation.
