Are You Considering Surrogacy, but Have No Idea What It Costs?
I'm Nicole K. White, an assisted reproduction and surrogacy lawyer. I am also a mother by surrogacy, so I can relate to what you are going through.
At the beginning of my first surrogacy journey, I had many questions, but one question that kept me up at night was how much will this cost.
Each surrogacy journey is different, and the cost depends on several factors. Click the button below to find out what your surrogacy journey may cost.
I recommend Nicole without reservation
"I found the surrogacy process to be complicated, anxiety-provoking, and often opaque. Intended parents (IPs) are vulnerable to a seedy network of “professionals” who want to take advantage of the IP’s perceived desperation, and see them as an easy financial mark. Nicole has valiantly protected me from some of these people – and has been an incredible ally, providing me with a clear understanding of what is and isn’t contractually “normal” in the surrogacy world. She reviewed fee benchmarks, explained legal language as needed, and was extremely timely in her responses. She was a voice of calm and reassurance during a very stressful time, and worth every penny of her fees. I recommend her without reservation to any IPs who need legal services." -VJ
"I had a great experience. Nicole was informative and patient. The fact that everything was pretty much taken care of online was great. I really appreciated the time and money we saved by not having to do in-office visits." -SG
"I truly felt so lost and confused due to getting involved with a horrible surrogacy agency. Nicole took me by the hand and finally I felt that I was in the hands of someone who was ethical and knew exactly what she was doing. It was such a nice added bonus [to work with an attorney who had personally been through the surrogacy process], as she had walked in my shoes at one time and knew all the emotions and tons of questions an IP would have. I had so many questions for Nicole, but she never lost her cool with me. My overall experience with Nicole was excellent. I felt so confident and safe with her, as I knew that she knew exactly what she was doing. She is honest, ethical, efficient, and so knowledgeable. My only regret is that I did not find her sooner!!!! I recommend Kinsey Law Group/Nicole to anyone!!!!!!." -RS
"Nicole has been keeping me updated about the status of my case in a timely manner. She was very professional, knowledgeable, patient and considerate. I was lucky for having her as my lawyer. I will highly recommend her to my friends. I look forward to her professional support again throughout my journey." -WQ
My Surrogacy Journey
My dream of having a family of my own was made possible through assisted reproductive technology (ART) and surrogacy. After learning that I could not carry a child myself, my husband and I were devastated and overwhelmed, but our desire to have a child was strong. So, we decided to pursue IVF/gestational surrogacy to have a baby.
Thirteen months after starting the process, our surrogate gave birth to a beautiful baby girl. I cannot begin to describe the flood of emotions I felt when my daughter was placed in my arms. I will never forget that day, and my husband and I will forever be grateful for our surrogate. Three years later, we had another wonderful surrogacy journey that resulted in the birth of our son.
Because I am an infertility survivor and mother by surrogacy, I know firsthand what you will need – support, guidance, communication and a smooth process – and what you will go through when starting your family. My experience also helps me guide you through the financial, emotional and legal aspects of ART and surrogacy.
I can say with confidence that few (if any) attorneys deliver the unique insight I can bring to your journey. From knowing what to expect during the surrogacy process to preventing and resolving problems with your chosen surrogate, I share information, ideas and advice learned as an attorney and as an intended parent.
