Surrogacy

Surrogacy is a legal agreement whereby a woman referred to as the the surrogate mother agrees to be pregnant and deliver on behalf of another person(s) who will be the legal parents of the said child upon delivery hereinafter called the commissioning parents. The surrogacy process is regulated by Chapter 19 of the Children’s Act and the parties wishing to explore the route of surrogacy need to comply with the requirements as set out in the Act.


There is a legal agreement referred to as the motherhood legal agreement which have to be entered into by the parties, which sets out the terms, rights and responsibilities of all the parties involved. This agreement has to be made an order of court before the surrogacy process can ensue.


It must be noted that in South Africa, surrogacy is not commercialized like in other countries and therefore it is a requirement that the person who agrees to carry the child on behalf of a person or person does so in her own free will without any expectation of payment. Furthermore, that there must be a medical condition which is irreversible and permanent which makes it impossible for the commissioning to have children.

Administration of Deceased Estate and Wills

In the event that one dies without a will, the estates will be dealt with in terms of the interstate succession act, which looks at whether the deceased was married, had children and or relatives.
It is always advisable to have a will to ensure that in the event of your death, your assets are distributed as you would wish.
Note that in the absence of a will, someone will be appointed to act as an executor. It is better to appoint a lawyer in this regard.
