Experienced Legal Guidance For Surrogate Agreements

A gestational carrier agreement is more commonly known as surrogate parenthood. In these contractual arrangements, a woman agrees to carry a child to term for another individual or couple and the surrogate parents become the legal parents once the child is born.

The contract stipulates an amount of money a birth mother will receive, as well as how medical costs, travel costs and other expenses will be paid. As you might expect, these agreements are complex, and it is important to work closely with a lawyer who has extensive knowledge of any state laws addressing gestational carrier agreements. The family law attorneys at Brudvik Law Office assist clients in North Dakota and western Minnesota with all aspects of surrogate parenting agreements.

Understanding Surrogacy Laws

Under North Dakota law, a woman who agrees to a gestational carrier agreement must carry the biological child of the intended parents. That is, an embryo that is fertilized by the male partner's sperm must be implanted in the surrogate mother's uterus through artificial insemination. Minnesota does not have laws that directly address surrogate agreements.

Our family law attorneys have extensive experience in a wide range of adoption matters. We recognize the emotions involved in this process, the sensitivity of the issues addressed, and the importance of providing complete confidentiality for all parties. We will also review insurance issues carefully and advise all parties ahead of time, whether gestational pregnancies are covered under a relevant policy.
