Easy tips to Avoid a Surrogacy Scam  

For those considering surrogacy, consider a few different factors in order to lower the possibility of a surrogacy scam.

Retain an Attorney

Perhaps one of the most important steps an individual can take in pursuit of surrogacy is to hire an attorney. The attorney will guide the individual through the surrogacy process and make sure that the agency and/or surrogate mother are legitimate. .

Use a Surrogacy Agency Located Through Recommendations

Another way to reduce the likelihood of a scam is to choose a surrogacy agency with the aid of recommendations. Ask others who they have used for surrogacy matters. Recommendations are a great way to choose service providers because hey provide added insight into what the company is really like.

Choose a Local Agency

Try to use a local surrogacy agency. If you use a local agency, it will be easier to determine how long they have been in business and their reputation in the community. In addition, by using a local surrogacy agency the future parents will find it easier to meet the necessary parties for appointments and office visits.

Ask a Lot of Questions

Be sure to ask a lot of questions. There is no such thing as a silly or stupid question. By gathering information on the agency and the surrogate mother, the future parents are more likely to be well informed. It is important to gather the information and then make an independent judgment about the legitimacy of the surrogate agency and the surrogate mother.
