What is a Gestational Surrogacy Agreement?
Some families face unique situations where they need a gestational mother to bear their child. Gestational mothers are those who bear a child for another woman who has either not contributed her own eggs and does not have a genetic relationship to the child, or who has gone through in-vitro fertilization, but needs another woman to bear her child.
The state of Texas has taken bold steps to provide laws that allow for the creation of enforceable “gestational agreements” that protect both potential parents and gestational mothers. There are a number of emotional and legal issues involved in the creation and enforcement of gestational agreements. It is critical that all parties are in agreement and that the agreement is valid, clear, and enforceable.
