  • Surrogacy
  • The Law Offices of Robert Rettenmaier works with surrogacy clients to assure that they are legally protected as parents as fully and as quickly as possible. Our firm does not find surrogates for clients. However, once intended parents have matched with a surrogate, we focus on providing the best long term legal protection to the intended parents, the surrogate, and the child, regardless of the state in which the baby is born. Our services include drafting and reviewing surrogacy contracts on behalf of either the intended parents or the surrogate; and handling the legal proceedings necessary to assure that the intended parents end up with full parental rights and that the surrogate is relieved of her parental responsibilities. We are particularly attuned to the legal needs of single people and gay and/or international couples becoming parents through surrogacy.

The firm strives to help our clients identify the critical issues to include in their agreements, and assure that the agreements are legally accurate and protect all parties to the full extent possible under the law.

  • Egg Donor Agreements
  • The Law Offices of Robert Rettenmaier drafts egg donor agreements on behalf of singles and couples using donated eggs to achieve pregnancy — either themselves, or with the assistance of a gestational carrier — and also reviews these same agreements on behalf of egg donors.
