Gestational surrogacy is the process by which a surrogate mother is implanted with an embryo and has no biological relationship to the child.  The embryo can be a combination of egg and sperm from the intended parents and/or donors.  A gestational surrogacy agreement is necessary to make clear the surrogate’s intentions versus the intended parents’ intentions as it relates to the parentage of the child.  Our attorneys can assist either the donor(s), the intended parent(s), or the surrogate in order to ensure that the surrogacy agreement protects the client’s rights and meets the client’s needs.  In addition, after a surrogacy agreement and birth of the child, it may be necessary for a court to confirm parentage of the intended parents and obtain a birth certificate.  Our attorneys also assist in such a court hearing.
