What is the purpose of a surrogacy agreement?
Jun 4, 2018
A surrogacy agreement is an agreement between the intended parents and the surrogate. It deals with issues such as medical testing, termination of the pregnancy, selective reduction, expense reimbursement. If it is signed before conception and all parties have independent lawyers, the birth of the child can be registered when the child is 7 days old if everyone is in agreement. This avoids a costly application to court before the Superior Court.
