Surrogacy - Can the surrogate mother keep our baby?

The surrogate mother doesn't have to give you the baby. The fact that you have spent hundreds or even thousands on making her pregnancy as comfortable as possible is irrelevant.

Wendi Deng’s instinctive reaction to the atrocious and indefensible attack on Rupert Murdoch was met with applause in our office. Whatever the protestor’s intentions, the incident only served to shift the mood slightly in favour of the Murdochs, distracting from the scandal. Best regards Harjit Sarang

Should I get married?

Watford Observer: Photograph of the Author

Posted on 11:45am Thursday 26th May 2011

Thank you for your question. You have been living with your partner for 13 years and have 3 children. Marriage has never been an issue because neither of you are religious. You are independent and individually wealthy which is one of the reasons why the relationship works so well. The children are aged 5,3 and 10 months. You want to know where you stand should the relationship break down and stress to me that getting married for financial reasons goes against all of your principles as an independent woman. (I hear you!)

I'm divorcing. Can I add my maiden name to our daughter's surname?

Watford Observer: Photograph of the Author

Posted on 11:07am Friday 18th March 2011

If your husband has parental responsibility for your child then you will need his consent to change the surname. Parental responsibility is automatic if his name is on the birth certificate as you were married.

Contact with the children over Christmas

Watford Observer: Photograph of the Author

Posted on 1:46pm Wednesday 1st December 2010

Family law solicitors are inundated with Christmas contact enquiries during this time of the year. My advice is usually that if you live close enough to one another, the day could be shared between you. Parent 1 could have morning to 1400/1500 and Parent 2 could have the afternoon / evening (times may vary). That way, the children see both of you and enjoy the day.

I need to get my belongings. Can I get back into the matrimonial home?

Watford Observer: Photograph of the Author

Posted on 1:19pm Monday 6th September 2010

You tell me that you left the matrimonial home last week because you could not bear the atmosphere in the house anymore. You took some belongings but you have left some paperwork and important documents. Your husband is refusing to give you the keys and is threatening to change the locks. He will not give you your documents and is not communicating with you reasonably. The house and mortgage are in joint names.

How has mother registered me as the father on her child's birth certificate without my consent?

Watford Observer: Photograph of the Author

Posted on 2:16pm Wednesday 11th August 2010

Thank you for your question. I'm not sure whether you are married. If you are married, the mother of the child may attend alone to register the birth and then enter your details as father.

Ex's new wife doesn't like our 5yr old daughter because she doesn't treat her like an adult! Ex now wants infrequent contact with our daughter at my house. Am I breaking the law if I say no?

Watford Observer: Photograph of the Author

Posted on 1:05pm Monday 7th June 2010

If you believe that contact is in your daughter's best interests, your obligation is to facilitate it. That means, making your daughter available for the session. This obligation does not extend to providing accommodation. Can't he take her out for a few hours? There are plenty of things to do with a 5 yr old. As contact is so infrequent, a few hours out somewhere nice will make her feel special.

Hello there. Nobody has an automatic right to a Residence Order in respect of the children. As you are aware, a Residence Order is an Order stating where the children should live. In whose care they should be.
