What You Need To Know

Since many other firms don’t cover this area of the law, we actively research any updates and developments. Whether you are trying to conceive or are considering adoption, we want to help you grow your family. Some people find this is best done with a gestational carrier. This is different than a surrogate in that the woman uses a man’s sperm and a woman’s egg, not her own egg. A gestational carrier agreement is used to clearly expresses terms such as delivery, future contact, and insurance concerns. We can help you create this legal document and make sure everyone is protected.

An important part of this process is establishing parentage. This is used to prove the intended parents are actually related to the child. In doing so, it also relieves the gestational carrier of any rights or responsibilities when it comes to raising the child. This can also be done before the carrier birth, which is known as a pre-birth order. The intended parents will be listed on the birth certificate and, legally, they will have the rights to the child. These guidelines are important to establish, but we know that they can sometimes be emotional. Our team of lawyers will thoroughly explain each part of this process for you.
