For people considering surrogacy, it can be difficult to know where to begin and what to anticipate. Before entering into any surrogacy arrangement within Australia, there are key questions that each person should ask to avoid legal uncertainty and possible missteps. VARTA, in collaboration with Kellehers Australia, has compiled a legal checklist resource which should be essential reading for anyone contemplating a surrogacy arrangement.
