Virginia also limits her practice in the area of Reproductive Technology Law.
She knows that decisions can be overwhelming when it comes to all the exciting new options available in medical advances in assisted reproductive technology parenthood. This includes the representative of intended parents, gestational parents, egg donors, sperm donors, embryo donations as well as designated surrogacy.
Virginia is especially sensitive to the emotional and financial costs of the process. She will discuss with you in detail the pros and cons of adoption versus donation and surrogacy from a legal and practical standpoint.
The expenses vary, particularly with regard to the medical costs, including whether donor ova are needed, the number of IVF cycles needed for the surrogate to become pregnant, and the amount of medical costs not covered by insurance.
Once you have found a gestational surrogate or an egg, sperm, or embryo donor, Virginia can draft or review the donation or surrogacy agreement you will need to protect your rights and ensure that you can establish parentage of your child. In gestational surrogacy, Virginia can perform the legal work to obtain the pre-birth order of parentage and birth certificate, or the adoption, to establish you as the legal parent of the child.
If you are needing to be matched with a gestational carrier, please contact our offices. We have several options available.
