We have been able to confirm that Surrogate Parenting Center of Texas has ceased operations. We previously reported on difficulties that clients were experiencing with SPCT and cautioned all parties working with SPCT to immediately contact legal counsel to protect their rights. Based upon recent information, there appears to be a number of egg donors who have not been paid for completed cycles with no timetable or assurance that their compensation will be forthcoming.
If you are an Intended Parent, Recipient Parent, Egg Donor or Surrogate, we strongly encourage you to speak to your attorney to assess the status of your arrangement and to take immediate steps to secure any funds on account and/or owed to you. Further, if you have requested the release of funds that were being held in a trust account and your request has been denied, you may want to speak to your attorney about the propriety of contacting law enforcement.
We will continue to monitor this situation and update the Blog as more information becomes available.
