Our Lawyers Are Leaders In Assisted Reproductive Technology Law

Reproductive Law Attorneys Helping LGBTQ Clients Fulfill Their Dreams Of Parenthood

Laws governing parental rights for LGBTQ individuals vary widely across the globe. In the United States, Canada and across much of Europe, LGBTQ individuals are empowered to adopt children and embrace parenthood. Conversely, in countries like Russia and numerous African and Middle Eastern nations, the path to parenthood for LGBTQ individuals is fraught with legal hurdles.

If you are in a same-sex relationship or otherwise identify as a member of the LGBTQ community, chances are good that your journey into parenthood will involve adoption or surrogacy.

A Collaborative Law Firm With An International Reach

In the United States, the landmark Supreme Court ruling in Obergefell v. Hodges, which heralded the legalization of same-sex marriage, has been pivotal in easing the adoption process for same-sex couples, facilitating their recognition as lawful parents. Several states have also enacted laws to expressly uphold the parental rights of same-sex couples.

In Canada, the legal framework supports LGBTQ individuals in their quest to adopt children and become parents. Additionally, the Canadian government has instituted laws to shield LGBTQ individuals from discrimination during the adoption trajectory.

In Europe, home to nations like the United Kingdom, France and Germany, the legal entitlement of LGBTQ individuals to adopt and raise children is generally acknowledged. Nevertheless, it’s imperative to note that regulations pertaining to adoption and surrogacy can diverge substantially among European countries.

Whether you’ll be adopting internationally or entering into a surrogacy agreement, egg donation agreement or sperm donation agreement with someone from outside of your home state or country, you need the help of a lawyer with international reach and local connections. Our reproductive law attorneys are licensed to practice in California, New York and Oregon, and we collaborate with a network of local attorneys in other states and countries to meet our clients’ needs no matter where they reside.
