Looking for a Montgomery Surrogacy Attorney?
When it comes to surrogacy in Alabama, there’s one professional you can’t do without: a surrogacy attorney.
While surrogacy in Alabama is legal, the laws and regulations can be complicated, especially if you’ve never taken this journey before. A surrogacy attorney is the only one who can guide you through these regulations, ensuring that your Montgomery surrogacy meets legal standards and procedures.
Most surrogacy programs and agencies will require you to outsource your legal services to a third party. But, because Southern Surrogacy is a law-firm-owned program, our intended parents will have access to in-house representation from local firm Claiborne|Fox|Bradley|Goldman.
That’s right; when you work with our program, you will receive all of these legal services included in your flat program fees:
- Confirmation that your surrogacy meets established Montgomery surrogacy laws
- Drafting and negotiating of your legal surrogacy contract
- Establishment of your parental rights through necessary parentage orders
- Legal advice and guidance every step of the way
- And more
We will also help your gestational carrier obtain independent legal counsel, to avoid conflicts of interest.
Our in-house attorneys have decades of experience with surrogacy in the South, and they will be happy to answer your questions about Alabama surrogacy laws from the very start of your journey. For more information, please contact our offices today.
Looking for a Montgomery Surrogacy Clinic?
Before intended parents contact a surrogacy program or agency, they must locate a surrogacy clinic (also known as a fertility clinic). These medical professionals will be the first to determine whether gestational surrogacy is a viable family-building option for an intended parent’s situation.
Many of our intended parents have existing relationships with fertility clinics. They have often completed prior fertility treatments or have already created their embryos for transfer. Most intended parents can work with their clinic, even if it’s not centrally located for a surrogacy in Montgomery, AL. If a surrogate must travel to complete the embryo transfer, intended parents will cover her travel and lodging costs.
If you already have a relationship with a surrogacy clinic, please confirm that they can handle these pre-surrogacy medical steps:
- Creating embryos through in vitro fertilization (if not already done)
- Screening both parties (medically and psychologically) to confirm eligibility
- Prescribing fertility medication to their surrogate and monitoring her cycle
- Transferring the embryo to her uterus
After the pregnancy is confirmed, a surrogate will receive prenatal care from her local obstetrician (again, all of her medical costs will be covered by her intended parents).
If you are an intended parent and have not located a clinic for your surrogacy in Montgomery, please contact one of the ones listed below. A reproductive endocrinologist will determine whether gestational surrogacy is an option for your family-building goals.
- Alabama Fertility
- The Center for Reproductive Medicine
- Fertility Institute of North Alabama
- Fertility Program of Alabama
This is not a full list of regional surrogacy clinics, but Southern Surrogacy can provide additional references upon request.
Surrogacy in Montgomery can seem overwhelming at the start. But, with a full-service program such as Southern Surrogacy by your side, it will be much easier. Let us guide you through this life-changing journey and help make your dreams a reality.
