Legalities of it all?

I have a quick question. My sister has offered to be my gestational surrogate. I know we still have to have legal documentation, but what if any difference is there if i were to have someone i didnt know as a surrogate? Should it be as difficult? I would think not, but then again i dont know. This will be our first try for her, my fourth of ivf myself. But we both are going to have my fresh eggs transfered in hopes that 1 of us will get pg. Thanks for any info.

I would say that no, your contract shouldn't be any different just because you know each other. If nothing else, your contract outlines everyone's expectations. Yes, some of the details will seem silly because you're family and know each other, but trust me ... you can't predict the future or relationships and it's so much easier to just refer to your contract to settle any issues you might have.
I'm of a mind, "better safe than sorry".
I wish you all the luck in the world in starting your family!
