38834211 - happy mother and her newborn baby. maternity conceptAn enforceable surrogacy contract covers the rights and obligations of surrogates and intended parents – before, during and after birth. An enforceable surrogacy contract is a written document clearly setting forth the terms and conditions surrounding the conception and birth of your child through gestational surrogate.

Enforceable Surrogacy Contract

To protect and preserve your rights as intended parents – and the rights of your future baby – you must work through a reputable gestational surrogacy agency. New Beginnings Surrogacy will help you navigate the laws in your state and make sure you are represented by an experienced attorney who can draft and finalize your surrogacy contract.

The legal enforceability of a gestational surrogate contract varies from state to state. This is because the social acceptability of surrogacy still exists over the use of a surrogate mother to have a baby. If your fertility specialist has recommended surrogacy for you and your partner to have a baby, you must find out how the process works in your state to ensure that your rights are protected.

Parental Rights Under an Enforceable Surrogacy Contract

Parental rights are not always guaranteed after a surrogate pregnancy and birth. Parental rights continue to change as reproductive technology changes. The definition of a parent also continues to evolve, state-by-state.

An enforceable surrogacy contract must encompass a clear definition of your rights and liabilities in the case of:

  • IVF failure(s)
  • Pregnancy complications
  • Multiple pregnancy
  • Birth complications
