Alabama's IVF Law and Your Journey

If you've been trying to grow your family in Alabama, you're likely aware of the Alabama Supreme Court's IVF ruling that embryos are considered children. The implications of this are that if you already have frozen embryos from previous IVF attempts or are considering surrogacy and want to freeze multiple embryos, any unused embryos that are destroyed may result in legal consequences for the parents and the IVF provider.

If you are interested in surrogacy and already have created embryos, or you are considering doing so, you should be sure to connect with an ART attorney who specializes in IVF and/or surrogacy. They can help you determine the best way forward and ensure you are legally protected and represented.

We can connect you with one of the reputable attorneys we partner with, or we can refer you to an IVF clinic in a neighboring state such as Florida, Georgia or Tennessee.
