Surrogacy Agreements in Michigan
If you are considering surrogacy in Michigan, it is especially important that you retain the services of a reproductive law attorney. Not only is surrogacy the most legally-complex of the ART procedures, but because of surrogacy law in Michigan, you need to be sure you have someone who can help you through the process.
In Michigan, paid surrogacy is considered illegal, and surrogacy agreements are considered void. However, non-compensated or altruistic surrogacy is legal, and medical expenses and other expenses can be reimbursed. Your reproductive law attorney can help you navigate Michigan law and make sure your rights—and that of the surrogate—are protected throughout the process.
