The following are some common questions people ask and some basic answers. For more detailed information and how this applies to your situation, we encourage you to contact us and schedule a consultation.
Are surrogacy/gestational carrier agreements enforceable in Nevada?
Yes. Nevada law allows for gestational surrogacy, regardless of sex or marital status, so long as the egg is that of an intended parent or a donor, and not that of the surrogate.
Do intended parents have to be husband and wife?
No. Nevada law allows single individuals as well as married and unmarried couples to use a gestational surrogate. This includes same-sex couples and domestic partners.
Can a surrogate be paid?
Yes. Intended parents may pay the surrogate reasonable compensation, as well as reimburse expenses related to the surrogacy (such as medical bills, legal fees, maternity clothes, travel, lost wages, etc.).
Can we use a donor egg or donor sperm?
Yes. So long as there is an enforceable gestational agreement in place, executed in accordance with Nevada law, a donor egg and/or a donor sperm may be used. The only exception or caveat is that the donor egg cannot be that of the surrogate.
