Sperm Donor Agreements
Emily can work with you to prepare an agreement with your known donor that will help ensure that you have a clear understanding about each person’s roles, rights, and responsibilities.
If you are planning on using a gestational surrogate to help you have a child, Emily can review contracts between you, the facilitator (if you use one), the ovum donor, and the surrogate. She can also help you to obtain a court order establishing your parentage.
Parents who aren’t in a legal relationship, don’t live together, or where only one person is a legal parent sometimes want to set out their agreements in writing. Emily can help you consider your needs and prepare a written agreement that spells out your parenting arrangements clearly.
Name and Gender Changes
It’s quite simple to change your name or gender on your own in California, using Nolo’s How to Change Your Name in California or resources available from the Transgender Law Center. But if you find you want assistance, Emily can coach or represent you in your name or gender change procedure.
