Surrogacy Process in Portland & Vancouver
The path to surrogacy has lots of steps and milestones. Each surrogacy will have its own unique facets, but having a summary idea of the process can still be helpful.
The process of surrogacy typically involves two main components: securing a surrogate and dealing with the paperwork.
If you don’t have a surrogate already identified, you can find one through a surrogacy agency or network. Once you have found a potential surrogate, you will need to discuss your plans with them and agree on the terms of the surrogacy arrangement. The contract should include information about the payment of the surrogate's fee, health care expenses for the surrogate, and any other financial arrangements that need to be made.
Assuming both parties meet any applicable eligibility criteria and agree on the contract, the surrogacy can be set in motion. The surrogate will get inseminated/impregnated and fulfill the contractual obligations set forth in the contract. Before the baby is born, the intended parents’ legal team will finalize any necessary documents to ensure the proper transfer of parental rights.
