Surrogacy isn't always easy so protect your own interests

Some people are unable to carry a baby so they turn to surrogacy to be able to have a child. For everyone involved in this situation, it is imperative that they ensure that their interests are protected. There are many different things that you have to consider if you are thinking about using surrogacy.

We understand that you might be so ready to move on with the plans that you overlook some of the most important parts of the agreement, but this can work against you in the long run. Whether you are the person who is becoming a surrogate or the person who is using a surrogate, you need to make sure that you think about some basic points.

One thing that you have to think about if you are the person using a surrogate is what, if any, biological connection you want to the baby. Some people want the baby to have a direct tie to at least one parent. This could mean using artificial insemination with the man's semen. This is likely an easier option than using an egg transfer that enables the woman and the man to each have a direct link with the baby.

Other aspects of surrogacy that you have to think about include how medical bills will be handled. What about the living expenses for the surrogate? Are there going to be any limitations to what the surrogate can do during the contract? All of these things should be clearly conveyed in the legal agreement between the parents and the surrogate. We can work with you to ensure that you have covered all your bases in these situations.
