Why Do I Need a Reproductive Lawyer for IVF?

In-vitro fertilization treatment refers to the process of implanting fertilized eggs in a prospective mother’s uterus, and it may involve an egg from either the expecting parents or from a donor. Because more than 150,000 IVF cycles are performed each year, many couples are now choosing to try frozen embryo adoption, relying on donations to begin growing their family.

No matter what form of IVF you decide to pursue, this advanced reproductive method can often bring up unique legal challenges surrounding donor rights and informed consent. While not every individual will need the assistance of an attorney during IVF treatment, having a reproductive lawyer on your side can be an invaluable tool as you seek out fertility options.

Here are some of the benefits to discussing your case with a qualified reproductive attorney:

  • Assistance with complex forms and contracts. Because IVF is expensive and may involve multiple parties, you will most likely have to sign informed consent forms regarding the treatment of your eggs, and potentially forms involving donor’s rights as well.
  • Help with parental rights for same-sex couples. Many same-sex couples turn to IVF treatment to begin families, and because this process will typically need to involve a donor, all the same legal difficulties may apply. For female same-sex couples, there may also be difficulties related to establishing maternity for the other partner.
  • Counsel on IVF embryo adoption. Although frozen embryo adoption is rising in popularity, the laws governing this process vary from state to state — and even from year to year. Having an experienced attorney on your side will ensure that all your legal agreements and contracts are in order.
  • Advocacy for your needs. If any legal issues do come up related to IVF, surrogacy, or other reproductive methods, it can be beneficial to have a lawyer close at hand to advocate on your behalf.
