  • Paul enabled us to achieve our dreams by helping us bring our babies home. We had twins born through surrogacy in America and Paul explained everything we needed to do and helped us every step of the way. He was always contactable and went out of his way to make it happen as smoothly as possible. They are now 9 months old and both American and Australian citizens. Thank you Paul for making our family complete!

    Paul Norris-Ongso's experience, skill and knowledge in the highly complicated area of International Commercial Surrogacy, not only helped us to complete our required paperwork, it made our whole experience so much more relaxed.  We felt secure knowing that we had a professional to assist us with every step required for the legalities in our state, which is a huge relief as you navigate the often confusing world of International Commercial Surrogacy.

As intended parents, you have so much to worry about as there is so much uncertainty and you want to make sure everything you do is legitimate and appropriate so that you can bring the child back with full entitlement.

Paul is just that right legal advisor you need in your surrogacy journey. His role in reviewing all the legal contracts, advising the regulatory compliance is pivotal and is a safeguard of your successful surrogacy journey.
