“Surrogacy Agreement” is an agreement between the intended parent and the Surrogate, which expresses their necessity and fully volitional desire to opt for Assisted Reproductive Technique of Surrogacy, whereby the surrogate shall bear and gestate the embryo of the Intended Parents and will have no legal rights on the child.
Since there is no specific law with regard to Surrogacy or Assisted Reproductive Technique in India, Surrogacy agreement is the only foundation which governs the parties to Surrogacy. Therefore the Intended Parents are required to devote attention to have a perfect agreement in place, so that the surrogacy agreement is not held void or voidable in the court of law.
Leto Surrogacy bank clients enter into a surrogacy contract with a surrogate mother and her husband, if applicable. The contract sets out the responsibilities of both parties and offers legal protection for clients and surrogates under Indian contract law. The contract also specifies payment to the surrogate mother and the stages at which she will be paid. By signing the contract the surrogate signs away parental rights to the baby she carries.
