Insurance for international dads-to-be

The first important thing that international parents should focus on when they're considering surrogacy in the United States is Insurance, specifically newborn insurance. The insurance issues in the U.S are complicated and you need to make sure that you have private insurance in place for the newborns when they are born. Your surrogacy clinic or reproductive attorney may be able to assist you and point you in the right direction, to find an insurance plan that works for you.

The second thing to consider is the home country laws. It is highly encouraged that intended parents should have a home-country lawyer to get advice and to help me to make sure that they do the right things for the intended parents, legally, here in the United States. A home-country lawyer will help ensure them that they can return to their home country with their baby and register their child and obtain citizenship for them in their home country.
