Why do I need a surrogacy attorney in Colombia?
Colombia is one of the best destinations for surrogacy in the world, if not the best. This means, that intended parents from all over the world can and should come to Colombia to carry out their surrogacy pregnancies in the country. As a result of quality of procedures and competitive pricing, Colombia has become one of the most eye-catching countries for medical tourism.
However, there are existing barriers for intended parents coming from abroad, like national laws and regulations that are far from their understanding. This is when a surrogacy lawyer comes in handy, as a guide into the legal regulations for surrogacy in Colombia in a language that the intended parents can understand. Additionally, they will perform their traditional roles of drafting legal documents, handling child custody cases, handling financial compensation matters and any other issues that may arise before, during and after surrogacy.
Consequently, since the parents are non-nationals of Colombia, this leads to a considerable amount of paper work in civil registration and immigration procedures. In this sense, it is imperative to include in the birth certificate the intended parent(s) as the legal guardians of the newborn child. This process of the regulation of the minor's rights must be done with the utmost care, accompanied by an attorney, to protect the rights of all the parties involved but most important of the child.
These are 4 reasons why you should hire a surrogacy attorney:
- They will be your legal representation: during all the surrogacy process, your surrogacy attorney will be in charge of protecting your rights and those of your newborn child.
- Drafting of legal documentation: one of the most significant part of the surrogacy process that your surrogacy attorney will face will be the documents between the intended parents and the surrogate mother. These documents need to be precise to leave out the opportunity for a legal dispute of custody.
- Legal and safe surrogacy: even though surrogacy is a process that is normalized in recent years, it is still a new process for most legal systems around the world. That is why it is essential to have legal guidance of a surrogacy attorney throughout the process.
- Immigration procedures: when intended parents travel from around the globe to have their children via surrogate in Colombia, the process of registry and civil documentation is essential for the legal surrogacy process. The protection of the minor's rights depends on an adequate immigration and registration process done by a professional surrogacy attorney.
