Surrogacy in Cyprus does not have solid legal grounds and any legal contract you may have with your surrogate is likely to have enforceability issues. This is why we only offer gestational surrogacy through our unique surrogacy program called CASS (Cyprus America Surrogacy Services). With this unique program, we offer you affordable low cost surrogacy arrangements.
Our US-based surrogacy program works in a dual phase. The legal work, surrogate recruitment, child delivery and registration take place in the United States, in one of the surrogate-friendly states depending on your surrogate is recruited.
The first step in surrogacy IVF treatment, once the necessary framework has been established, is to design a contract which specifies the rules and the steps involved in the surrogacy arrangement. Our lawyer in the US is specialized in surrogacy cases and has a very good reputation for it. Our lawyer’s office will draft your contract with all the legal framework established, and all the details itemized. You will then review your contract before signing and proceeding with treatment. For a contract to be ready, we will be needing to match you with a surrogate and have everything discussed thoroughly so both parties can agree on common grounds. As each contract is different from the other depending on your requests (apart from the standard parts), you will only be able to review your contract once the lawyer drafts it specially for you.
The next step is to prepare medically for the actual treatment to take place. This requires a series of events in which first we ask for certain tests and diagnoses from all parties involved, make an assessment based on these test results and formulate a treatment calendar accordingly. At this point, if an egg donor is required, we would be matching you up with a suitable egg donor as well. Either you or your donor will prepare medically for an ovarian stimulation cycle in order to produce multiple good quality oocytes to be used during the IVF cycle.
Once the preliminary work is final, we will proceed with IVF treatment. At this point, we will perform oocyte retrieval from you or your donor, fertilize with your partner’s sperm (or donor sperm if requested) and create the embryos. The highest quality embryos, in turn will be transferred into the surrogate’s uterus on day 3 of fertilization. The surrogate will go back to the US and the treatment will be over. Once the baby is born after nine months, you will make a single trip to the US to hold your child for the first time 🙂
Our main aim is to provide a low cost affordable treatment without sacrificing the quality and reliability. Therefore, we make sure the surrogate is bound by a very well-prepared contract by someone who has significant amount of experience in this field. The actual treatment, is carried out by us.
