Establishing Parentage in Traditional and Gestational Surrogacy
The most important part of any surrogacy adoption is ensuring that parentage is properly established and ensuring that a surrogate does not take any claim to parental rights. In gestational surrogacy, both parents genetic material, in this case the egg and the sperm, are carried to term in the body of a surrogate. In traditional surrogacy, one parent’s genetic material, either the egg or the sperm, is combined with the genetic material of the surrogate and then carried to term.
Regardless of the type of surrogacy chosen, it is essential that legally binding agreements are entered into before any medical procedures take place. Myself and the legal team at The Law Office of Christi A. Misocky, P.C., can help ensure that all necessary details, such as expenses, insurance and medical costs, are considered and that proper parentage is established. This can help avoid any potential legal headaches down the road and ensure that this new chapter of your life is a joyous one.
