British Judge Grants Primary Custody to Surrogate Mother

The same-sex couple is permitted to visit their child once every 2 months and must pay support costs.


A controversial case that started with a clandestine meeting in a Burger King restaurant has ended with a whopper of a legal decision in Great Britain.

A judge granted primary custody of a baby to his surrogate mother after finding the gay couple who funded his birth acted maliciously. They got only very limited visits with the now one-year-old boy, and also have to kick-in for the cost of his upbringing.

The unnamed woman agreed at the secret meeting to carry and deliver the couple’s baby, which reportedly would be created from an anonymous donor egg and the sperm of one of the men. They agreed to pay the British equivalent of $11,500 during a 30-minute negotiation, set up by a covert surrogacy group on Facebook.
