I am in the middle of a surrogacy with the agency in No Cal that nanette runs. I heard through the fertility center that the company had filed bankruptcy. We were in negotiations with a contract. The parents put in a clause that if I did not receive payment from the agency i would be compensated a week later by them. So we went forward. I recieved an email today from the agency telling me they are closed effective immediately. My parents happen to be in town ( they are from germany.) and our transfer is scheduled for wednesday. I hope my contract is still binding between myself and the parents. Their attorney is trying to get back the money from the agency , 50,000. So surrogates beware this agency has closed. They say there email still will work for about 10 months but i doubt it. just a heads up.
I have also need to retain an attorney for the parental rights portion. any suggestions.
