Preparing and finalizing a surrogacy agreement involves various steps:
- First, your attorney will send you a written retainer agreement to review. It will explain the services included and their cost.
- Intended parents must sign it to continue.
- Once the retainer agreement is signed, your attorney will start working on the actual contract.
- Your attorney will send you the first draft of the agreement and send you a copy for review.
- The draft will be sent to the surrogate's attorney for review as well.
- Once both parties (you and the surrogate) have agreed to the terms of the contract, you must sign it.
