Legal Benefits of Using a Surrogacy Agency for LGBTQ Intended Parents and Others are Highlighted by New Utah Legislation, says G

Legal Benefits of Using a Surrogacy Agency for LGBTQ Intended Parents and Others are Highlighted by New Utah Legislation, says Global Surrogacy Services

The Los Angeles-based agency comments on a recent article that going through a surrogacy agency protects the legal rights of intended parents of all orientations.

PR Newswire

LOS ANGELES, Feb. 20, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- A February 8 article on The Salt Lake Tribune reports on a new law being sponsored by Utah State Rep. Patrice Arent of Millcreek that would ensure state surrogacy laws would conform to a recent ruling by the Utah Supreme Court. The ruling found that a current law banning gay males from taking advantage of gestational surrogacy is in violation of the 14th amendment to the US Constitution. Los Angeles based surrogate agency Global Surrogacy Services says that the proposed new law is a positive step forward for the rights of intended parents of all orientations but it also points to the complexities of navigating the legal side of gestational surrogacy which affects all parents, including cisgender heterosexual couples as well as those who may be seeking out LGBTQ services.

Global Surrogacy Services says that the Utah situation points out how these laws can often differ greatly from state to state and nation to nation. Even in states like California that are relatively surrogacy and LGBTQ-friendly, dealing with the legal system and finding the right kind of legal assistance can easily overwhelm anyone. An agency that has experience guiding all kinds of intended parents through the aspects of the surrogacy process – and which knows where to find the appropriate legal counsel and what steps need to be taken – can greatly reduce the stress involved with the process.

The surrogacy firm notes that there a great many other sensitive areas associated with the process with possible medical and/or legal ramifications. Specifically, it notes that prospective surrogate mothers are very special people who are ready to perform an enormous service for others but, for their own good as well as for all other parties, they are vetted as part of a painstaking screening process that thoroughly takes into account their physical, emotional, and psychological readiness for a very important task. Afterward, the agency continues, a careful matching process ensues that allows intending parents and prospective surrogates to meet face to face with their potential surrogate. The agency explains that the purpose of the meeting is to ensure that all parties feel comfortable with the entire arrangement as well as with each other. Situations can vary a great deal in terms of such matters as how much time intended parents and surrogates may spend together but the important thing is that all parties know what to expect, says Global Surrogacy Services.
