The Legal Implications of Using An Egg Donor to Build Your Family in Kansas City
Posted by Pathways to Parenthood | December 17, 2013
If you are planning on becoming a parent through egg donation, it is important to consider the legal issues that need to be addressed. Because having a child is such an important life event, it is essential to obtain legal counsel to help you know and protect your parental rights.
Depending on the path you use to choose your egg donor, you may not be “required” to consult with an attorney, or have a legal agreement, before a clinic will clear you for treatment. Some clinics that have their own egg donor programs use their consent forms as your legal agreement between you and your donor. It is possible the consents may be sufficient to protect your parental rights, but they may not be.
The only person qualified to answer that question for you is an attorney with experience in assisted reproductive technology.

Egg Donor Program Disclaimer
Pathways to Parenthood Surrogacy Agency’s egg donor program is no longer in operation. After many wonderful years of helping families grow through egg donation, the difficult but necessary decision was made to close the program. The Covid pandemic’s economic impact and change in market conditions greatly influenced our decision.
The good news is that we are still building families through surrogacy. Plus, given our years of experience, we can provide education and guidance regarding the egg donation process for family building, and also recommendations and referrals for finding an egg donor. Please contact us for more information.
