Surrogacy Law

A surrogate is a woman who carries another person or couple's baby during pregnancy. A surrogate may be the genetic mother of the infant or may have no biological relationship to the child. Surrogacy laws vary dramatically from state to state, and before beginning the surrogacy process, prospective parents and their surrogate should consult with surrogacy attorneys and adoption law firms to understand local surrogacy laws. (In some instances, a surrogate may have to travel to a state with more favorable surrogacy and adoption laws to give birth.) Before a surrogate becomes pregnant, both the surrogate and the intended parent(s) should each consult with a surrogacy lawyer for help negotiating, drafting and reviewing a surrogacy agreement.
