How To Become Intended Parents in Nevada
For those who struggle with infertility or are part of a same-sex relationship, it may seem like having a baby of your own is impossible. This isn’t the case for those in the state of Nevada. Nevada is a surrogate-friendly state. This means that it passed laws that legalize the use of commercial surrogacy within the state. How can you become an intended parent and start the process of surrogacy? Here’s everything you need to know about joining our surrogate agency, Made in the USA Surrogacy.
What are the Laws of Surrogacy in Nevada?
Nevada has placed down detailed laws about how surrogacy is to be treated within its state. For one, it legalizes commercial surrogacy. This means that surrogate agencies are able to hire surrogates to help intended parents carry their babies. It also legalizes the use of surrogacy for same-sex couples. Whether they’re married or unmarried, traditional and same-sex couples can use a surrogate to have their baby.
What Nevada does not legalize is the use of traditional surrogates. This is when surrogates use their own eggs for fertilization. As a result, the baby shares half of her DNA. This can quickly become a legal nightmare. Nevada forbids the use of traditional surrogates and instead pushes for gestational.
The custody of the baby is established through two different methods. Intended parents can either be done through pre-birth parentage orders or through adoption. Most often, intended parents choose to do a pre-birth parentage order since that allows them to take custody of the baby once it’s able to leave the hospital.
Surrogacy in Nevada can be complex when it comes to its laws. To make your time easier, it’s better to join our surrogate agency. We’ll help you take care of all the legal matters pertaining to your journey.
Intended Parents Should Remain Committed to Their Dreams
The process of surrogacy is rarely smooth. You’ll likely be faced with setbacks and upsets. However, it’s important that you stick with the process. Through a gestational surrogate, it’s possible to have a baby of your own. The process is going to require a lot of time and energy. You need to stay strong through it all to finally achieve your dreams of parenthood.
Why You Should Join Our Agency to Find a Surrogate in Nevada
There are two choices when you decide to pursue a baby through a gestational surrogate. Do you want to use a surrogacy agency in Nevada or an independent surrogate? Some may appreciate the lower cost of an independent surrogate, but you’ll often find that you’ll get what you paid for.
Independent surrogates are not vetted or screened. You can’t be sure with extreme certainty that they are healthy enough to carry a healthy pregnancy. Our agency has several surrogacy qualifications that they need to pass before joining us. These surrogacy qualifications are designed to help find women who can offer a healthy pregnancy.
They’re also screened for mental wellness and tested to ensure they have a strong support system at home. All of these details are critical in ensuring whether or not the process is going to be smooth and your baby is going to be safe.
Our agency also provides you with information that you need to find a surrogate attorney. This step is crucial when creating the birth contract and other parental contracts that need to be signed. Navigating surrogate law isn’t easy on your own. You don’t want to delay the process further because you missed something.
Our agency is there to have your back. We can answer any questions you have about the process and advise you on what steps to take. We’re always there to support you.
The Cost of Surrogacy in Nevada
Another important factor that intended parents need to consider is the cost of surrogacy in Nevada. Having a baby through a surrogate isn’t a cheap venture. However, it’s an investment that can completely change your life. Most surrogate journeys can cost anywhere from $100,000 to $150,000.
It’s always a good idea to financially plan for a higher amount. The process can hit many roadblocks that can cost you more. You need to be sure that you’re financially prepared to deal with those delays.
The Process of Surrogacy for Intended Parents
Your journey begins by selecting our surrogacy agency in Nevada to join. When you contact us, we’ll have a few questions to ask you. These questions are to ensure that you’re prepared for the journey ahead of you. We want to make sure that you have the right kind of support system.
When the interview is over and you’ve officially chosen us as your agency, you’ll need to sign an Agreement for Services. In that document, you’ll find all of the services that we can provide for you.
Some of those services include counseling, surrogate screening, case management, and referrals. You’ll be given a case management team and coordinator who will help you stay on track throughout your journey.
At this point, it’s up to us to find a surrogate in Nevada who best matches the criteria that you submit to us. A few factors may cause a bit of delay in finding the perfect one for you. However, you can typically expect a match within a month to four months.
It’s also essential that if you need an egg or sperm donor, that you take the steps to find one. We can help refer you to a fertility clinic that can make that happen.
Once you’re matched with a surrogate, you’ll need to make your initial deposit in an escrow account. That initial deposit will be $10,000. It’s used for any remaining costs after the birth of your baby. Otherwise, you’ll need to fund the escrow account with the full amount in three months.
With the money taken care of, you and your surrogate will start the IVF and embryo transfer process. During IVF, you and your spouse will be given fertility medications to boost your fertility. This helps your body produce a lot of egg and sperm cells. Those cells are collected by the fertility clinic and placed in a petri dish. It’s common for the clinic to form many embryos and store them in cryo for later use if needed.
Once an embryo has been created, it’s placed inside of the surrogate via an embryo transfer. Your surrogate will also have been taking fertility medications to help their body accept the embryo.
If her body accepts it, then you’re on your way to a healthy pregnancy. If not, then the process will be started over again.
Once your surrogate is pregnant, you’ll be able to start preparing for a new baby after nine months. You may be able to attend doctor appointments with your surrogate and visit them if the distance and time allow.
After nine months, the surrogate will be ready to give birth. The birth plan will be followed to ensure a happy and safe delivery occurs.
