Those who turn to surrogacy or adoption as a means of having a child all have a common end goal: they want their family to grow and need help to make that happen. Over two decades ago, Reno attorney Eric A. Stovall saw an overwhelming demand for a knowledgeable adoption and surrogacy lawyer in Nevada. He then decided that he could fill this void within the legal community.

Twenty-two years later, attorney Eric Stovall has assisted with over 1,500 successful surrogacies and adoptions for his clients. During that time, Nevada surrogacy laws evolved, making the state one the most progressive in the country, providing protection to surrogates and intended parents. Medical technology also evolved, allowing for more certainty in a surrogate pregnancy. As a result of these legal and scientific advances, more parents are looking to surrogacy in Nevada as a means to expand their families. Eric Stovall’s experience make him remarkably qualified to provide strong legal support to those families during the process of surrogacy or adoption. He is:

  • Widely regarded for his work in these areas of law
  • Referred Nevada surrogacy and adoption cases by lawyers located across the state and nation

A family is one of the most precious gifts; surrogacy allows a friend, relative or even a complete stranger to give the gift of a family to another. Surrogacy appeals to many individuals and couples because it allows you to have a child of your own, even if you cannot conceive. Furthermore, Nevada’s progressive laws allow virtually any parent or family to take advantage of the surrogacy process.

If you are considering surrogacy or need an attorney for a surrogacy contract, then Eric A. Stovall can help. He can provide attorney advice regarding the following:

  • What types of surrogacy do Nevada surrogacy laws permit?
  • Can I use surrogacy if I am a single parent?
  • How do Nevada surrogacy laws affect LGBT couples?
  • Who can use a surrogate?
  • What are common surrogacy costs?
  • What do I need to know about becoming a surrogate?
  • How do I make sure a child born using a surrogate is legally mine?

  • What information should I include in a surrogacy contract?
  • Do surrogates have to go through medical or psychological testing?
  • What happens if a surrogate changes her mind once the baby is born?

Eric Stovall’s work in reproductive law includes providing representation for either the gestational carrier or intended parents involved in a surrogacy. He also has the experience necessary to offer legal services to new agencies during business formation.
