A Pre-Birth Order is a pre-birth judgment of parentage issued from the court prior to birth that establishes the intended parents as the legal parents of the child(ren) carried by their gestational surrogate.
This certified court order allows the hospital birth clerk to place the intended parents’ names on the birth certificate (to the office of vital records) upon delivery of the child. It also allows the intended parents to wear the matching infant identification bracelets, and make all personal, medical, and financial decisions for the infant at the time of birth. The Pre-Birth Order is essential for protecting both parties and ensuring that everything unfolds as planned from the moment of delivery.
Some states require a Pre and/or a Post-Birth Order. There are legal maneuvers that we will do to ensure your having the same rights at birth at the hospital, while the post birth order is being processed.
