There are reports the Australian government is demanding child support payments from a New Zealand woman who had a baby for two gay Queensland men.

The Sydney Morning Herald says the case is raising fears of financial clawbacks for other New Zealand surrogates. In another case an Auckland woman is eight months pregnant with a son to another Australian gay couple. Surrogacy is illegal in Queensland and other parts of Australia, but not in New Zealand.

A family law expert here says surrogates could be forced to pay child support in both countries if their babies were not adopted
