Adoption and Surrogacy

Attorney Ashley Richter understands that adoptions can be challenging transitions for families.  Ashley knows the adoption process, and because she regularly serves as a guardian ad litem, she understands children's issues.  She helps families successfully navigate both routine and more complex adoption cases—the goal being to make the process as easy as possible for our clients throughout the adoption process. 

Attorney Richter can help you pursue the following types of domestic adoptions and work through the various issues that accompany them:

  • Step-Parent Adoption
  • Foster parent adoption
  • Same-sex couple adoption
  • Domestic partnership adoption
  • Guardianships
  • Termination of parental rights

Assisted Reproductive Technology & Surrogacy

Assisted reproductive technology and surrogacy are viable alternatives to adoption and can be equally complex.  Attorney Ashley Richter works with intended parents, surrogates, and donors, and can assist you with the following:

  • Surrogacy contracts
  • Embryo donation agreements
  • Egg donation agreements
  • Sperm donation agreements
  • Parentage proceedings
  • Termination of parental rights proceedings

Creating your family so that you have the appropriate legal protections in place requires careful planning and experienced counsel.  We are happy to help you make informed decisions regarding your options.
