How Jim Thompson Can Be Your Spartanburg Surrogacy Attorney
But, what if you don’t want to work with a surrogacy agency in Spartanburg?
Even if you complete an independent surrogacy, you will always need to work with an attorney. Because there are no surrogacy specific statutes in South Carolina, you may want to consider consulting with an experienced Spartanburg surrogacy attorney who can help you safely and successfully navigate the legalities of this process.
Fortunately, attorney Jim Thompson is here to help. He has guided many intended parents and gestational carriers through this process, and he is happy to do the same for you. As your Spartanburg surrogacy attorney, he will:
- Evaluate your surrogacy plan for legal issues and complications
- Draft or review and finalize your surrogacy contract
- Establish intended parents’ parental rights and terminate the gestational carrier’s presumed parental rights.
- And provide other legal counsel throughout your surrogacy journey
Sometimes, our clients want more than simply legal services — but don’t need all the services typically included in our surrogacy program. That’s why we are happy to tailor our professional assistance to what you need. Whether you are looking for a full-service surrogacy program, legal advice only, or something in between, our team will help create the perfect surrogacy plan for your goals and needs.

Surrogacy Clinics in Spartanburg (and Nearby)
Just like the legal process, the medical process of surrogacy can be complicated. All intended parents and surrogates must work closely with a reproductive endocrinologist at a local fertility clinic to initiate a successful pregnancy.
If you are an intended parent, you probably already have a surrogacy clinic in Spartanburg or another local area in mind — and you will be able to use that clinic for this journey. You must be prepared to cover your surrogate’s travel and medical costs for this process, no matter where your preferred clinic is located.
If you have not yet contacted a surrogacy clinic, we encourage you to reach out to one of these local professionals before starting the process with our team:
Hospitals in Spartanburg
After a surrogate’s pregnancy is confirmed by the surrogacy clinic, she will typically be able to receive the remainder of her prenatal care at a local obstetrician of her choice. She will, often, also get to choose the hospital at which she delivers. Remember: A surrogate’s medical costs are always completely free to her.
Because our program primarily works with intended parents and gestational carriers who reside in South Carolina, it’s common for intended parents to be present at the birth of their child. They will create a hospital plan with their surrogate, with the assistance of the law firm social worker detailing how this experience will go and reducing any potential confusion for them or their medical professionals.
If you are completing a surrogacy in Spartanburg, one of these hospitals will likely be involved:
