Since surrogacy laws can differ in each state, it is advantageous for intended parents to choose a firm that practices in a State where their chosen type of surrogacy is favored by the law. Choosing a surrogacy law firm is the first step to ensure that no surrogacy law is violated by any party involved in the process. In addition, the surrogacy law firm would offer protection should such surrogacy laws be violated by any party involved in the process.
For example, if the surrogate mother were to change her mind, the law firm would help to pursue legal action in that matter. One must not ignore the fact the intended parents have also changed their minds, and in this case, a law firm would protect the rights of the surrogate and of the child.
Surrogacy law firms exist to protect rights and to ensure that there is a legally binding contract in place. Even in states that have legalized surrogacy, intended parents have lost custody because their contract was either not valid or not clear enough.
By utilizing the services of a surrogacy law firm, one can be sure that a contract is clear, concise and legal. Should any problems arise with the contract, that law firm would fight in court to ensure the best outcome for their client.
