Legal Representation for Assisted Reproductive Technology in Colorado Springs

Assisted Reproductive Technology Law

Legal Representation

Choosing your life path can be complex and difficult. One of the most important decisions in our lives is whether to have children. There are individuals and couples that desperately want children; however, are unable to conceive without assistance. Meanwhile, there are donors and qualified surrogates/gestational carriers that are willing to provide a beautiful gift of opportunity to build a family.

Leta understands the pain some individuals and couples suffer because they cannot have children. Leta has wanted to help support families in this legal area for many years but until 2021, Colorado did not have comprehensive surrogacy laws. Fortunately, the law regarding assisted reproductive technology has been evolving in the State of Colorado. Due to the Colorado Surrogacy Agreement Act passed in 2021, Leta is pleased to expand her legal representation to include assisted reproductive technology cases.

On June 1, 2022, a bill was signed by the Governor that created the Donor-Conceived Persons and Families of Donor-Conceived Persons Protection Act. Colorado became the first State to give donor conceived individuals the right to learn their donor’s identity when they turn 18 years old and access the donor’s medical history.

In 2021, the Colorado Surrogacy Agreement Act, Colorado Revised Statutes ("C.R.S.") § 19-4.5-101 - C.R.S. § 19-4.5-114 et seq. went into effect. Any surrogacy agreement in Colorado must coincide with the rules under C.R.S. § 19-4.5-105. Intended parents and surrogates must have their own separate Colorado legal representation and meet the eligibility requirements under C.R.S. § 19-4.5-104 prior to entering an agreement. Pursuant to C.R.S. § 19-4.5-111, parties can obtain a Court order of parentage under a surrogacy agreement.
