Florida - the Ideal State for Your Surrogacy Journey

Florida is one of the few states that permits intended parents to establish parental status over a child without having to undertake a formal “adoption” process. Florida’s gestational surrogacy statutes effectively protect the parental rights of intended parents, and through a gestational surrogacy agreement made pursuant to Florida law, intended parents can be assured that the gestational surrogate has no legal connection to the child.

Agreements to Protect You

Gestational surrogacy agreements and pre-planned adoption agreements (which are commonly utilized by same-sex couples) are designed to ensure that all parties are protected. These contracts are intended to detail each respective party’s rights, obligations, intentions, and expectations, and are designed to cover all aspects of the anticipated pregnancy, including parental rights, reasonable reimbursements to the gestational surrogate, location of delivery, insurance, payment of medical expenses, future communication between the parties, and other provisions required by Florida law.

Effective Legal Representation

A successful gestational surrogacy not only requires that both the intended parents and gestational surrogate think deeply about the process, but also obtain effective legal representation for all parties involved to reduce uncertainties and potential complications during the pregnancy and post-birth.

Here are some additional benefits of hiring an experienced fertility attorney:

  • Help you find a qualified surrogate.
  • Help you negotiate the terms of your surrogacy contract.
  • Help represent you in court if necessary.
  • Help provide you with legal advice throughout the surrogacy process.
