Understanding Your Options As A Same-Sex Couple
Recent decades have seen remarkable achievements in reproductive medicine. With the assistance of a surrogate mother, egg donor and/or sperm donor, same-sex couples and single parents can and do become biological parents. Depending on your home country or state, there may be a legal nuance that should be addressed at the very onset of your journey at contracting. Fertility & Surrogacy Legal Group, APC is here to help.
Helping You Make Informed Decisions
There are many options that you must consider when navigating this process. For female couples, whether or not you want to know the sperm donor is one; deciding who will carry the child is another. Maybe one partner wants to contribute the egg while the other becomes pregnant. Surrogacy is also a choice that is right for some couples or single parents. It all depends on your specific situation and what works best depending on your needs. We can explain the choices you face and help you move forward.
