Legal representation is strongly advised for anyone entering into a surrogacy or donor arrangement. Surrogacy is the most complex legal arrangement. Surrogacy legal contracts articulate rights, legal intent, and determine how decisions will be made throughout the pregnancy. It protects all parties including the child.


Regardless of whether you are doing a domestic or international adoption, it is very important to have expert legal advice. International adoptions are complicated because the child is subject to the laws of the adoptive country. Domestic adoptions are governed by the laws of the individual state which can differ between states. Adoption lawyers can help craft a post adoption contract clarifying the rights of the birth parents post adoption.
