There are certain elements due to the nature of assisted reproductive methods that will require the intended parents to obtain legal declaration of their claim as a legal parent of the child born through third party reproduction or an assisted reproductive method.
In some cases, various states will also ask the court to establish a pre-birth order to finalize the legal rights of the intended parents.
