Contemplating Surrogacy in Tennessee? Batson Nolan Can Help

Regardless of whether you are an intended parent or a surrogate seeking to undergo the process in Tennessee, Batson Nolan can assist you in navigating this complex yet rewarding journey.

Similar to many other jurisdictions across the country, Tennessee has implemented a unique statutory scheme and legal route you must abide by in order to fully protect your rights and interests when pursuing a surrogacy. With over 150 years of providing unparalleled legal services to our clients, we have the experience and resources to help you along every step of the way so you can focus on what really matters: fulfilling your surrogacy and parenthood goals with the least amount of stress and hassle possible.

Tennessee Surrogacy Statutes

There are several factors that can potentially influence your surrogacy experience from a legal perspective, such as your relationship status, biological connection to your son or daughter, and other individualized elements. In the state of Tennessee, specifically, there is a compilation of a number of nuanced and complex court opinions that differentiate the closely related processes of surrogacy and adoption and establish the legal path for surrogacy as well. The surrogacy attorneys at Batson and Nolan can assist you in interpreting this precedent and explain how it impacts your case.

If you or a loved one are thinking about surrogacy in Tennessee, it is important to keep in mind that there are zero prohibitions against compensating surrogates. And although there are a number of legal hurdles to jump through when it comes to traditional surrogacy, hopeful parents undergoing a gestational surrogacy with a minimum of one genetic connection can usually receive a pre-birth order with minimal issues or delays. Surrogacy by way of egg donors or embryos may be more challenging in Tennessee, however. If you are weighing this option, our surrogacy attorneys can advise you on the best approach in doing so.
