Family in the Kitchen


Parentage Orders are court orders establishing the

Intended Parents' legal status as the parents of the child.

The Maine Parentage Act sets forth eight main mechanisms

for establishing parentage.


We represent Intended Parents working with

a Gestational Carrier or Surrogate in petitioning the court,

prior to the birth of the child, to have their names placed on the child's birth certificate and establish their legal status as parents

of the child at the moment of birth (Pre-Birth Order).

Post-Birth Parentage Orders may be obtained as required.

We also represent individuals seeking to establish parentage

by the concept of de facto parentage.
