Fertility & Paternity Issues
There are a variety of permutations of agreements in fertility and paternity issues. This makes for complex law with differing rights and responsibilities for all parties involved.
We provide guidance with all aspects of family planning and building by representing intended parents, surrogates, and egg, sperm and embryo donors. We negotiate and draft surrogacy and donor agreements to reflect clients’ intentions and protect parents’ rights. We successfully make court applications to have intended parents recognized and treated equally to genetic or adoptive parents in all types of families.
When errors occur at a clinic or by a fertility doctor providing assisted reproduction services, we litigate liability and damages.
We facilitate and enforce child support with scientific parentage/paternity testing. We work through this sensitive process with our clients and apply legal remedies appropriate to the findings of the tests.
