Nashville, TN, Lawyers for Assisted Reproductive Technology
To help you understand and protect your family’s rights, it is important to retain the services of a lawyer specializing in reproductive technology law. These attorneys should have expertise in drafting legally-binding contracts that clearly state the legal rights, roles and responsibilities of donors and intended parents in the instance of egg donation, sperm donation, embryo donation, surrogacy and adoption.
To find a lawyer, ask your fertility clinic, surrogacy agency or donor agency for a referral. Make sure 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.
Tennessee Surrogacy Agreements
Tennessee surrogacy is legal in the following situations:
- In a gestational surrogacy arrangement where the intended parents are husband and wife and provide the sperm and eggs.
- In a gestational surrogacy arrangement where the intended father provides the sperm and the child is relinquished to the father and his wife.
It’s important to retain an attorney who clearly understands Tennessee surrogacy law and has worked with intended parents and surrogates prior.
