FAQ’s for Future Parents
Q. What are the advantages of using a Surrogacy agency like Pathways To Parenthood?
A. One advantage of using an agency is that an agency is an independent business that offers important services involved in the Gestational Surrogacy process. The sole purpose of an agency is to help Future Parents find the best Gestational Surrogates for their family building journey, and then facilitate and oversee the entire process.
The services provided by an agency offer an extra layer of protection and support through the complicated and time consuming steps involved in third-party reproduction. A reputable agency such as Pathways to Parenthood will diligently pre-screen all Gestational Surrogate candidates and facilitate and mediate between all parties to ensure that the necessary and important steps are done right and in a timely manner.
Although other less expensive options may seem attractive in the beginning stages of the process, ultimately they can cost you far more in the long run. Unexpected occurrences, unnecessary delays, and unprofessional providers can make the path to parenthood much more stressful, much more expensive, and much more psychologically difficult than it needs to be.
Q. How are Gestational Surrogates screened?
A. Please refer to the Gestational Surrogacy Program information for Future Parents.
Q. What are the laws regarding surrogacy?
A. The majority of states still lack any statutory guidance on surrogacy agreements. In surrogacy disputes, courts look to adoption, custody, paternity determination, termination of parental rights, federal and state constitutions and public policy considerations. Because of the lack of statutory guidance, it is important to work with an attorney that has experience working in assisted reproduction.
Q. Do you work with same sex couples and single men and women?
A. Pathways to Parenthood welcomes all individuals or couples considering the journey to parenthood through gestational surrogacy.
