Texas Surrogacy Agreements
If you are planning to use a surrogate, it is imperative that you retain the services of a lawyer who specializes in surrogacy law. Texas surrogacy is legal if you use a gestational surrogate rather than a traditional surrogate, and in order for a surrogacy agreement to be considered binding, it must be validated in court.
A reproductive law attorney should create a contract that states the roles, rights and responsibilities of the intended parents, the surrogate, and a donor, if applicable, and should detail all fees.
In order to find a lawyer, ask for a referral at your fertility clinic or donor agency or surrogacy agency if you’re working with one. You’ll want to choose a lawyer with experience in the type of fertility treatment you are undergoing. The American Academy of Assisted Reproductive Technology Attorneys is also a good resource.
