Surrogacy Lawyer in Chicago
Surrogacy can be a costly process, and a process in which there is absolutely no room for error. In Illinois, no court action is required to obtain a birth certificate in the names of the intended parents. However there are certain certifications (from the Illinois Department of Public Health) that need to be completed by all parties, attorneys, and the physician involved, as well as contracts.
