I'm a U.S. GS who will work with an IP from another country, as long as the duration of the pregnancy is in that country and the health insurance is through that country (delivery in the U.S. or not).
Any questions or comments about this kind of contract or arrangment?
I suppose the expense is less, or assumed to be, if it's the IPs who travel to the U.S. and the surrogate lives in the U.S., but I've also seen a desire of some IPs to have their unborn closer to them, in their own country, during the pregnancy.
As far as I know, a contract can be made in the U.S. for IVF, and then a pregnancy carried somewhere else, and then the baby delivered in the U.S. That would be a U.S. starter-finish line option, with both ends tied and still leave the surrogate free to travel and live in another country. I've also heard if the baby is born early, in the other country, before making it to the U.S., it is then just a matter of signing papers to have an "adoption" take place, where the surrogate says yes, it's not my child.
Has anyone talked with international IPs about these matters? Any stories to share or suggestions?
