Our adoption attorneys also work with clients who wish to pursue assisted reproductive technologies to build their families. In-vitro fertilization (IVF), donor egg or sperm, gestational carrier arrangements, traditional surrogacy, and embryo adoption, among other options, are complex processes. They require a seasoned attorney who understands the latest advances and can ensure that your rights are protected. In these areas, where real life is often ahead of the law and the legislature, the legal approaches must be as cutting-edge as the technology.
Neither Kansas nor Missouri have specific laws on the books related to surrogacy. However, both states allow surrogacy. These are states where both intended parents and surrogates can operate to create new families. Our firm can ensure you understand all that surrogacy entails in your state, including adoption requirements for the non-biological parent. We have assisted many individuals and couples in all of the legal aspects related to the surrogacy process.
