In December 2019, Sobel welcomed her beautiful daughter through surrogacy. After a long, arduous and emotionally draining surrogacy journey, Sobel set out to assist parents wishing to build a family through assisted reproduction by protecting their parental rights through carefully drafted and thoughtfully negotiated gestational carrier agreements.
When a child is born through surrogacy, the last thing that should be on a parent's mind is whether he/she will have to adopt his/her child or whether his/her child will be given the birth parent's last name on the birth certificate. Birth orders are court orders that determine legal parentage of a child. Birth orders should be obtained early in the pregnancy so as to allow the court system enough time to process and enter petitions prior to the child's birth.
