Hi, my sister and hubby is gifting me and my hubby a baby. Our baby is due May, 2016. Is this considered surrogacy even though not my egg and not hubby sperm? It's not adoption So what category does this fall into? Surely, there is a way I can claim paid parental leave from work. Centrelink has asked me for a statutory declaration from both parties. Advising they appoint me and hubby as legal guardian and that we will be primary caregivers to be entitled to 18 weeks pay. Work has also advised me for statutory declaration and letter from doctor advising the due date plus they wanted a letter from the lawyer advising the process we are doing which was that I wanted consent orders, but now knowing this will cost 5000, I am not so keen on it anymore and they are still insisting on consent orders. Any info greatly appreciated.
