FROM ONE INTENDED PARENT TO ANOTHER

As an Intended Parent, you are about to take part in one of the most exciting experiences of your life. At the same time, the world of surrogacy can be a complex and confusing place. Being personally involved in a surrogacy journey as an Intended Parent, I understand the issues you’ll encounter. Because of my own experience, I’m passionate about helping your family navigate the legal issues you’ll encounter. Beyond finding your best surrogate, it’s critical to understand and follow third party reproductive laws from the very beginning of your search until bringing your baby home.
 
I can help you in every step of the legal process by drafting and negotiating surrogacy agreements, drafting parentage declarations and donor egg or sperm agreements.
 
With expertise in third party reproductive law in Canada, I have helped many Intended Parents, surrogates, egg and sperm donors navigate our legal process quickly, efficiently and with a caring approach.
