My husband and I are finally at a point in our lives that we are able to fulfill our dream of having a baby by using a surrogate; her eggs and my husband's sperm and would be artificial insemination.We need a lawyer who can write up the legal "jargon" to help keep our surrogate and us as safe as possible.
Is there a lawyer out there in the Bemidji, MN area that could help us?
Thank You,

Hello there


If you are in the Minneapolis area, this particular attorney has had good results in the adoption and surrogacy legal areas (S. Born) -- You are correct to want to do this with an attorney right from the very beginning of the matter because there are many issues that can complicate a surrogacy arrangement and you want to have a local attorney involved from the first moment you begin thinking about getting involved in this area of family law and adoption. If that situation/attorney does not work out for some reason, then your best bet is to speak with a family law referral service in your area and they can give you the names of several attorneys local to you who can handle these matters for you. Here is a referral service in NW MN with offices in your home town --


I hope that this helps and I wish you the best in all of this !!
