Surrogacy Legal Process
The legal process in a reproductive arrangement varies greatly from client to client. State laws based upon where the surrogate resides, and upon where the intended parents reside will play a role in completing a GC Contract between the parties. In addition to the GC Contract, intended parents may require other legal work; sperm and embryo donor contracts, and medical insurance reviews when they begin their surrogate journey. After a pregnancy is confirmed, a Birth Order, which is the legal document to declare the intended parents as parents on the birth certificate, must also be prepared. Reproductive Possibilities will recommend the law office of Melissa B. Brisman, Esq., LLC for many of these services. For almost 20 years, the Melissa Brisman has successfully championed for changes in laws regarding surrogacy, so that all parents have the right to be named as parents on their child’s birth certificate.
