Protecting Your Rights And Interests During The Surrogacy Process
If you are planning to have a surrogate give birth to your child, it is crucial to ensure that your rights and interests are protected throughout this process. Even if your surrogate is a close and trusted individual, legal complications may still occur.
Having an experienced lawyer on your side can help you avoid unpleasant legal battles and make the road to parenthood as smooth as possible.
At the San Antonio law firm of Prince Contreras PLLC, our attorneys help both individuals and couples who are considering using a surrogate. We make ourselves available to help guide you through this process one step at a time.
Is A Lawyer Really Necessary?
Starting or expanding a family through the use of a surrogate can involve numerous potential risks and liabilities. For example, issues surrounding potential complications and what circumstances may require a termination of the pregnancy should be decided in advance.
A lawyer can help anticipate situations you may not have considered, especially if you are close to your surrogate. Establishing legal obligations and expectations at the beginning can avoid costly and potentially life-changing legal battles down the road.
An attorney can also help you take the steps needed to establish your parental rights, avoiding a potential future debate about who is the legal parent of the child. We can help ensure that the surrogacy process remains a cause for celebration, not a potential legal nightmare for years to come.
