Why Hire a Surrogacy Attorney?
Some people are hesitant to hire an attorney for a surrogacy case because they believe they can reach an agreement independently. If the surrogate, biological mother, or donor is a family member or close friend, this is especially common. Attempting to handle the surrogacy process without the assistance of a surrogacy attorney, on the other hand, is a mistake. In order to have a valid agreement, the New York family code requires that you have legal representation.
Here are just a few of the many reasons why you should hire one of our surrogacy attorneys:
We provide facts and advice. We will clearly define what to expect in terms of costs, timelines, New York legal standards, and other important information.
We will handle paperwork and contract drafting. It is not easy to add a child to your family. The paperwork and documents required are highly complicated. Surrogacy also entails working out a legal arrangement with the surrogate mother, the egg or sperm donor, or other parties. Otherwise, you risk losing too much money if this contract does not entirely secure your interests. Our attorneys will assist you in drafting a legally binding agreement.
We may assist you with mediation and advocacy. When children are involved, it is normal for emotions to run high. Conflicts are likely to occur before, during, or after the birth. Our attorneys will act as your loyal advocates, fighting for your rights and best interests.
