Reciprocal IVF

For women in a same-sex relationship, often one party will carry an embryo containing the other party's genetic material, and will give birth to the child. This process is known as Reciprocal IVF.

Gestational Carrier Agreements

Texas law allows married couples (opposite-sex couples as well as same-sex couples) that cannot conceive a child using traditional methods to utilize a gestational carrier (sometimes called a surrogate) to bring a child into the world using one or both of their genetic material. In order to have a legally binding and enforceable Gestational Carrier Agreement and have the agreement approved by a judge, the agreement must follow specific and technical legal requirements.

Jorgeson Pittman LLP has the experience to ensure that the proper legal process is followed and any child born under the Gestational Carrier Agreement is the legal child of the intended parents. Schedule a consultation with our experience Fertility Law attorneys today.
