There is a fee of $200 for the counselor/psychologist time. The consultation at our office in California usually lasts four to five hours. During this consultation, you will meet one-on-one with a psychological counselor who specializes in the field of surrogacy, a leading attorney in the field of surrogacy and members of our professional staff. The consultation at our East Coast office usually lasts approximately 4 hours. Here you will meet one-on-one with a psychological counselor and CSP Program Administrator, Perla Piekutowski. From our East Coast office, the legal consultation occurs by means of a telephone or Skype conference call.
