I NEED TO GET THE LEGAL ADVISE IN FIRST PLACE

about my rights and baby and the surrogate right and how this will work

Expert:  UKSolicitorJA replied 2 years ago.
Thank you.

In the UK, you cannot pay someone to be your surrogate mother, you may however pay reasonable expenses as the surrogate mother so the person is not left out of pocket.

As a matter of UK law, surrogacy agreements are not enforceable so if the surrogate mother decides to keep the child, you cannot do anything I am afraid, as under UK law, the mother who delivers the baby is the legal parent.

The surrogate mother would need to transfer parental responsibility to you.
