Connecticut Assisted Reproduction and Surrogacy Lawyer
Matta & Gager represents people of all ages in assisted reproductive technology law, and surrogacy matters. We understand the desire to have a family, and our knowledgeable and experienced assisted reproduction lawyers will answer your questions, explain the law, and represent you if any court proceedings arise. Reputable physicians in this field require that the parties have a detailed written surrogacy contract before they will start procedures. Having remedies in place before entering into this life changing event prevents needless heartache, disappointment, fear and confusion later on. These agreements are necessary in order to define the expectations, rights, and responsibilities of the donors, genetic parents, gestational carrier and intended parents.
At Matta & Gager, our experienced assisted reproduction lawyers address pre-conception and pre-birth issues in our contracts. A surrogacy contract will define what parties are included in the agreement so this does not become an issue that must be addressed in the future. Some examples of these issues include: financial and medical care of surrogate during pregnancy, postpartum care for the donor or surrogate, where the birth will take place, the legal status of the biologic parents during gestation and immediately after birth, the legal status of the surrogate mother, and many, many other issues that must be addressed in order to secure the rights of all parties involved, including the legal status of the fetus.
Matta & Gager understands the expectations regarding confidentiality and compensation and can draft the legal documents necessary to protect all parties. If you have questions or want to have a preliminary discussion about your surrogacy issue, please don't hesitate to contact us.
