Egg donation is a generous act that can bring hope and happiness to individuals and couples struggling with infertility. However, the legal aspects of egg donation can be complex and require careful consideration. In Illinois, engaging an experienced family lawyer is important in ensuring that all parties involved in an egg donor agreement are protected and their rights are upheld.
Drafting and Reviewing the Egg Donor Contract
Regardless of what area of law you are dealing with, attorneys are essential guides to anything related to a contract, such as contracts between the intended parents and the egg donor. This agreement outlines all parties’ rights, responsibilities, and expectations, including compensation-related issues, confidentiality, medical procedures, and future contact. An attorney ensures that the agreement complies with Illinois laws and protects the intents and interests of the intended parents and the egg donor.
