As science, medicine, and technology have advanced, new methods have come about to help create families. Years ago the only scientific intervention with regard to family formation was artificial insemination. Now, modern medical advances have been extended to anonymous egg donors, in-vitro fertilization, embryo donation, and gestational carriers. Please see an overview of assisted reproduction here.
Along with this change in technology and in society, new areas of the law are developing, either through legislative enactments or by the courts. Much of this is currently uncharted legal territory and therefore working with an attorney experienced in this area is important. The American Academy of Assisted Reproductive Technology Attorneys (AAARTA) is the leading organization in this area of the law, and is composed of attorneys throughout the United States and Canada who are experienced in Reproductive Technology law. Donald Cofsky is a Charter Member of AAARTA.
