A Legal Foundation For Your Family

Assisted Reproductive Technology Law Overview

Assisted reproductive technology (ART) has helped many families who have been unable to have children. Countless couples have had their lives enriched by welcoming children into the world. Unfortunately, these couples often fail to realize that there are serious legal concerns connected to assisted reproduction that need to be resolved in order to ensure that their intended parental rights are protected in all circumstances.

The Maple Grove law firm of Steven H. Snyder & Associates has been providing skilled assistance to clients with legal questions relating to ART for over two decades. Our lead attorney, Steven H. Snyder, has been practicing ART law for more than three decades and has extensive experience handling complex issues facing parents, donors and surrogates.

Helping You Make The Right Choices For Your Future

Our main goal is to make sure that you have the information you need to determine how you wish to move forward. We can help you minimize the risks and problems that you may not even be aware of when you are contemplating your options. Our assisted reproductive technology law practice includes, but is not limited to, helping clients with concerns relating to:

  • Sperm, egg and embryo donation: Whether you are considering being a donor or are a parent contemplating having a child using a donor, we will help you understand the legal requirements and risks specific to each situation.
  • Surrogacy: We help surrogates and parents-to-be with any and all issues related to surrogacy, including helping prepare and review any contracts that are necessary during the process, and establishing the intended legal parentage upon the child’s birth.
  • Same-sex family building: Our legal team has extensive experience helping same-sex couples establish, protect, and preserve their parental rights.

Our legal team will ensure that you have the information you need to minimize the risks that you may encounter. We explain how the law will apply to your situation in Minnesota and also examine the issues that may arise if a donor, surrogate, or parent resides outside of the state. We are completely committed to providing you with the guidance that you need throughout the process.
