Should I hire an attorney for my surrogacy arrangements?

The modern world comes with numerous advantages -- such as the ability to hire someone to carry your baby for you. Surrogacy is the use of reproductive technology to artificially inseminate a woman or to implant an embryo in a surrogate mother, who will allow the baby to gestate in her womb.

Of course, this method of conceiving a baby is risky in various respects. Therefore, it's important to have the assistance of an attorney.

Here are several ways an attorney can help you during your surrogacy process:

  • An experienced lawyer who has handled surrogacy arrangements before will advise parents concerning costs, timelines and potential problems that need to be avoided.
  • A lawyer will help prospective parents objectively choose a surrogate to carry and give birth to their baby.
  • An experienced surrogacy attorney will have contacts and existing relationships that will help speed up the process for the parents.
  • An attorney can help parents carry out background and reference checks, as well as medical and psychological screenings, on possible surrogate choices.
  • An attorney will work to negotiate fair financial and compensation arrangements with the surrogate.
  • An attorney will be able to assist in any kind of dispute resolution if a disagreement should arise with the surrogate.
  • An attorney will assist with the drafting of a surrogacy contract that will be enforceable should various situations arise.

If you want to have a baby through surrogacy, you'll have various options available to you and with a skilled Arizona family law attorney by your side, you will have the best chances of having a child.
