Gestational surrogacy and the legal issues relating to it can be complex. We want to present the facts in a simple format, so that intended parents can make informed decisions as they move toward fulfilling their family building dreams.
Chevy Chase, MD (PRWEB) June 05, 2013
Creative Family Connections LLC, an internationally recognized surrogacy law firm that focuses on surrogacy matching and reproduction law, launched a newly redesigned website to serve as an information resource for all intended parents, gay and straight, single and coupled, from the US or abroad, who are considering a surrogacy journey.
“Gestational surrogacy and the legal issues relating to it can be complex,” explained Diane S. Hinson, Founder and Managing Attorney of Creative Family Connections. “We want our website to be a resource. We want to present the facts in a simple format, so that intended parents can make informed decisions as they move toward fulfilling their family building dreams.”
A recognized leader in advocating for Assisted Reproduction Rights of same-sex intended parents, Creative Family Connections, through its new website, provides specific information for gay clients, including easy-to-find information about how each state law applies to same-sex parents.
Presenting legal information and facts specific to the surrogacy journey of international parents, the redesigned site demonstrates Creative Family Connections’ commitment to international intended parents, a rapidly growing customer base representing approximately 40% of the firm’s clients.
The site also serves as a national resource for clinicians, policymakers, and advocates, as well as legal, academic and research professionals, and provides widely referenced surrogacy-related information, including a comprehensive record of state surrogacy laws.
“I am especially excited about our interactive State-by-State Surrogacy Map, which includes a 50-state compilation of surrogacy laws. Our map is the only such resource of its kind on how surrogacy laws are actually practiced in each of the 50 States and the District of Columbia,” stated Hinson. “Intended parents need to understand how surrogacy laws vary from state-to-state and how those laws are applied differently, depending on who the parents are.”
For those interested in becoming a gestational surrogate, visitors to the site will find information on basic qualifications, guidelines on Creative Family Connections’ matching and application processes, and details on some of the required testing and clinical aspects a gestational surrogate can expect.
“Our new site features not only practical information on what intended parents can expect when being matched to a gestational surrogate, but also personalized accounts from parents and gestational surrogates alike, who hope to inspire others as they begin their own surrogacy journeys,” concluded Hinson.
