Gestational Surrogacy Agreement

Gestational surrogacy is the process through which a woman carries and gives birth to a child that was conceived through in vitro fertilization, with the intent to place said child in the care of another parent, referred to as the intended parent.

In order to have a valid gestational surrogacy agreement, the intended parent must have made a genetic contribution in the fertilization process. If the agreement is valid, the intended parent's legal parentage will be established once the child is born. The child's biological mother will NOT be considered their legal parent.
