Why you should have a surrogacy consultation

Becoming a parent is an extraordinary experience, and by meeting with us and sharing your story, you'll better understand the guidance and support you'll have from us at every moment of your journey.

 Finding out what's best for you.

Finding out what's best for you.

During complimentary consultations, prospective parents typically meet with a process consultant and an attorney to review our programs and our agency protocols. Since every intended parent is looking for something different, our consultation team addresses the process of matching with an egg donor and/or a surrogate, legal implications, insurance, surrogacy costs and financing, whenever applicable.
 Getting to know you.

Getting to know you.

During your consultation, we'll ask that you share your story with our team. We like to hear why you want children and how you came to surrogacy, what your support system looks like, whether friends or family know you’re interested in surrogacy, how you'll prepare for your child once your surrogate mother becomes pregnant, etc. At the end of every consultation, we give intended parents plenty of time to ask any questions and review any areas that might be unclear.

If you'd like to schedule a consultation, please fill out this short form to tell us a little bit about yourself.

Becoming a Parent: An Overview

Consultations with Circle Surrogacy.

All prospective intended parents – whether you’re a couple or a single individual, LGBTQ+, domestic or international – begin with a complimentary consultation that lasts approximately 2-3 hours. This helps us tailor information to meet your specific needs.

Becoming a Circle Surrogacy parent.

If you wish to proceed with Circle Surrogacy after your complimentary consultation, you'll sign an Agreement for Services. Once the Agreement is executed, you'll be assigned a Journey Support Team, who will guide you through every phase of the process.

The matching process.

The matching process begins with an initial call or Skype with your Journey Support Team to choose an IVF clinic and an egg donor (if needed). The next step is to find an appropriate match with a gestational surrogate who's completed our comprehensive screening process.

How do I begin the process?
Starting your surrogacy begins with a free consultation. You'll hear from an experienced attorney as well as a process consultant. We'll tell you about our program offerings, ask you about your experience so far, and answer any questions you have.
How long does the whole surrogacy process take?
The length of the process depends on several factors. We typically tell intended parents that they should plan on a year and a half from the time they sign on with our agency until they have a child, although it can be quicker or longer depending on the legal requirements involved and the course of the IVF treatment.
Will I need an attorney?
If you live outside the United States, you may find it advantageous to work with an immigration attorney from your home country. You may also need to consult with a family law attorney in your country for help finalizing your parental rights when you return. Finally, some intended parents hire an independent attorney to review our Agreement for Services before signing on with us. Most people do not feel it necessary to find counsel for this purpose, but they do review the Agreement carefully and occasionally request edits and make comments before signing. Once you have joined our program, however, Circle’s legal team will act as your counsel for all legal matters related to the surrogacy in the United States. We will represent you for the negotiation of any contracts with the surrogate and egg donor and will work with local attorneys across the United States to finalize your parental rights.
