We have experience with international clients and can assist with varying travel documents needed for your baby. We find that open communication is crucial. By working together, we can get things done the right way. While it is possible to do this on your own, without proper guidance you could delay the process.
Similar to applying for your own passport, you will need to complete an application on behalf of the child. We can help you fill out this paperwork to ensure it is done properly. There are certain requirements that must be met. For example, you must prove that the surrogate was not coerced or exploited in any way. She also must waive her parental rights. You also should show that the baby is genetically related to you. We do this by providing the state with a DNA sample. Understandably, this can get confusing. This is why we are here to help.
