The decision to become involved in the family building process through assisted reproduction can be an intimidating one.

10 Reasons to Consider a Legal Consultation in Collaborative Reproductive Arrangements:

  • To become informed about legal trends locally, nationally, and internationally.
  • For an explanation of how parentage may be determined.
  • To explain the relationship among and between the parties.
  • To delineate the rights and obligations of all parties.
  • To negotiate with other parties.
  • Other professionals involved in the process likely lack legal expertise.
  • To review and explain the legal aspects of the informed consent forms from the fertility center.
  • For advice regarding long-term planning, such as disclosure, embryo disposition, and information for estate planning.
  • For a discussion of applicable laws.
  • To facilitate an adoption or parentage order, if necessary.
