Important to know

The agreement concluded by and between the spouses and the surrogate mother must be in writing and certified by a notary.

It is very important to specify the consequences of unforeseen circumstances in the agreement.

Failure to properly organize the surrogacy process from the legal point of view may result in many threats. It is better to use qualified legal assistance and support rather than making hasty decisions.

RELEVANT INFORMATION

Surrogacy is the advanced assisted reproductive technology that helps couples to get a child. The process involves the development of the agreement to be concluded with a particular woman, under which she agrees of her own accord to carry a baby through pregnancy on behalf of a couple and then return the baby to the genetic parents.

Legal relations under the agreement are governed by the Family Law. As a result, the married couple will be legally considered parents. The data of the surrogate mother will not be specified anywhere.

The Surrogacy Agreement is the main document, which specifies all the disputable and not disputable issues. It can be either for a fee or for free.

The Agreement may specify:
  • Conditions related to preparations for the process;
  • The process of using this reproductive technology;
  • Desired results; 
  • The responsibility of the parties; 
  • Payment details, etc.
You shall protect yourself in the surrogacy process at the very beginning, at the stage of drafting the Surrogacy Agreement. Remember that it is your personal tool to ensure a positive result.

If you want to protect yourself against deception or any other negative effects in the surrogacy process, don’t hesitate to call us
