There is a lot of misinformation about surrogacy that only a knowledgeable attorney can help you sort through! Surrogacy IS legal in Kentucky, though there are some restrictions regarding compensation, etc. A valid gestational carrier agreement or contract is imperative to protect and enforce the parental rights of the Intended Parents. Additionally, the surrogate must have independent legal counsel to review any contract to ensure she is protected as well. After the birth, you may require a Parentage Order to establish that the Intended Parents are the legal parents, especially if there is no genetic connection, as well as a health care power of attorney in the interim. At Simms Russell Law, we are happy to draft or review your any documents and contracts necessary to aid you in the creation of your family.
