Memphis, TN, Lawyers for Assisted Reproductive Technology
It’s important to retain the services of a lawyer that specialize in representing intended parents, if you are building a family through certain infertility treatments or adoption to help you understand and protect the needs of you and your family:
Your attorney will draw up legal documents that clearly state the legal rights, roles and responsibilities of donors, surrogates and intended parents.
Tennessee surrogacy is legal if you use a gestational surrogate an in the following situations:
- The intended parents are husband and wife and provide the sperm and eggs
- The intended father provides the sperm and the child is relinquished to the father and his wife
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.
