Assisted Reproductive Technology is a remarkable scientific advancement that brings the joy of becoming a parent to many individuals and couples who could not otherwise experience it. However, there are many complex medical, emotional and legal issues inherent in the process of surrogacy that must be addressed correctly in order to have a positive, successful experience for all parties.
Katrina Cassidy is a Texas attorney who focuses her legal practice entirely on helping Intended Parents navigate these issues. As a mother of two children who were born through surrogacy, Ms. Cassidy has a unique perspective that allows her to fully understand your situation and help you through it from beginning to end.
From finding a Gestational Carrier to ensuring all of the legal bases are covered, The Law Office of Katrina Cassidy is experienced in handling all the nuances of Texas surrogacy laws.
Finding Your Gestational Carrier
Choosing the right Gestational Carrier is a vital part of a successful surrogacy. In some cases, clients come to us already having a Gestational Carrier in mind. For those who do not, we can assist in finding the right person.
Unlike many agencies, The Law Office of Katrina Cassidy does not attempt to fit available gestational carriers to Intended Parents and ask Intended Parents to compromise on this extremely important choice. Rather, it is our belief that a custom search should be done for each set of Intended Parents based on their specific location, needs and criteria.
We can conduct this custom search on your behalf, conduct comprehensive interviews with candidates, coordinate medical and psychological screenings, coordinate with the doctor’s office through the IVF process, and coordinate insurance policies.
Protecting Your Legal Rights
For clients who need help finding the right gestational carrier and those who already have a candidate chosen, we also offer comprehensive legal services to protect your rights regarding your child.
We prepare a Gestational Surrogacy Contract, represent the Intended Parents throughout negotiation of this contract, and ensure their interests are represented throughout the pregnancy and birth.
At The Law Office of Katrina Cassidy, we only represent Intended Parents. While we will make sure your Gestational Carrier has her own legal counsel, we will not represent both parties to avoid any conflict of interest.
