Surrogacy Lawyer Toowoomba
Sarah Jefford is a surrogacy lawyer, assisting people in Toowoomba, across south Queensland and around Australia. Sarah is the only lawyer in Australia practising exclusively in surrogacy and donor conception – ‘family creation’ law. A third of Sarah’s clients are in Queensland, and she practices across all states from her home in Melbourne.
Sarah was an IVF mum and later became an egg donor and a surrogate, delivering a baby for two dads in 2018. If you are entering into a surrogacy or donor arrangement in Queensland, Sarah can provide assistance to the intended parents or the surrogate and their partner including all advice, drafting the agreement and parentage orders.
If you are new to surrogacy, you can read about how to find a surrogate, or how to become a surrogate yourself. You can also download the free Surrogacy Handbook which explains the processes and options.
You can also purchase my book, More Than Just a Baby: A Guide to Surrogacy for Intended Parents and Surrogates, the only guide to surrogacy in Australia.
All consults can be completed over Zoom and phone during the daytime or evening.

When the baby is born, the intended parents can apply for a Parentage Order in Queensland. Sarah offers an affordable DIY Parentage Order package to transfer parentage from the birth parents to the intended parents.
If you are entering into a donor arrangement, be sure to get legal advice about the options and processes before conception. Sarah can provide advice about all the options, your rights and responsibilities and the best way forward.
