Handling Legal Issues Involving Alternative Reproduction

As technology has advanced, so has the ability for couples to reproduce in ways that would not have been possible in the past. While this is good news for couples who cannot or choose not to conceive in the traditional way, legal issues do sometimes arise, particularly when it comes to using surrogates.

At Reich & Truax, PLLC, our attorneys can help identify and minimize your risk of legal exposure when it comes to the use of alternative reproduction technologies. From our office in Southport, we provide experienced representation to people across Connecticut.

Safeguarding Your Rights And Responsibilities

In many cases, the use of alternative reproduction technology as a means of conception raises few legal issues. However, when utilizing the services of a surrogate, intended parents need to act with caution.

Although Connecticut recognizes gestational surrogacy agreements, some nearby states do not and an unintended birth in those states could have drastic consequences for all parties involved. It is extremely important that intended parents and gestational surrogates safeguard their various rights and responsibilities. One way to do so is to have our lawyers craft a detailed and specific contract designed to secure prebirth parentage orders so that the intended parents are placed on the child’s birth certificate.
