For people who are just starting their fertility journey, learning that you may want to speak to a lawyer specialized in fertility can be unexpected

Fertility lawyers are used in a number of situations, to guide patients around some of the considerations that should be discussed in advance by the future parents.

Here are a few examples of questions that a fertility lawyer might discuss:

  • How will our egg donor or surrogate be involved in our child’s life? 
  • If embryos have been created and remain safely in storage, but the couple is no longer together, who can use the embryos for a future pregnancy?
  • What is a legal parentage declaration, and do I need one?

Fertility lawyers are an important part of a third party fertility journey, which is when a person or a couple is using the help of a third party, such as an egg donor, sperm donor, embryo donor and/or a surrogate, to build their family.  Fertility lawyers provide legal advice and guidance about the legal framework relevant to the use of third party assisted reproductive technologies.
