Becoming an Intended Parent:
To qualify as an Intended Parent under a Washington State surrogacy law, both intended parents must:
a) be over the age of 21;
b) complete a medical
c) complete a mental health consultation by a licensed mental health
d) have independent legal counsel (independent from the surrogate’s counsel).
Typically, the fertility clinic chosen by the Intended Parents will complete both the medical and mental health exams. However, if that facility does not perform mental health exams, our office can assist you in finding an appropriate provider.
