In-vitro fertilisation (IVF) surrogacy adoption

Updated: 20 September 2018

Children born as a result of in-vitro fertilisation procedures have a right to know about their origins and to be able to access information about those origins. Under New Zealand law the surrogate (and partner) are recognised as the legal parents of the child. In order for the intending parents to be recognised as the child’s legal parents they will need to apply to adopt the child.
