We have heard how some Couple’s funds were stolen by Surrogacy Agencies. How do I ensure that my money is safe?
In California, lawyers are licensed by the state bar. We are required to keep accurate and good accounting of all funds held in our trust account. That cannot be said of surrogacy agencies, they are not licensed and therefore, if there is someone in an agency who is dishonest, your funds could definitely be in jeopardy. Where as if you are dealing with a lawyer and a lawyers trust account, believe me, his license is more important, that’s his livelihood and therefore, you can feel confident that your funds are safe.
