How to Become a Paid Surrogate in Arlington [5 Steps]

Step 1: Contact Us

Getting in touch with us is simple. Our online contact form can be completed in just a few minutes. We’ll tell you all about our pay rate and what it means for you when you work the highest-paying surrogacy agency.

Step 2: Complete the Screening Process

Our screening process is designed to be smooth and straightforward. It’s an easy process for you that seeks to ensure you meet the health and lifestyle requirements to get paid to be a surrogate in Arlington.

Step 3: Find the Best Intended Parents

This is one of the biggest decisions you’ll make as a surrogate. You can depend on our decades of experience with creating families, knowing we’ll do everything we can to help you find the perfect match.

Step 4: Draft a Legal Contract

This part of the surrogacy process must be completed before you the medical processes of surrogacy can begin.

That’s because your surrogacy contract will outline what the journey will look like, protecting the rights and interests of you and the intended parents.

Your surrogate pay rate will be defined in this contract too.

Step 5: Give the Gift of Parenthood

Once you’ve found the best-intended parents and signed your surrogacy contracts, it’s time for in vitro fertilization (IVF). You’ll start with fertility medications that help prepare your body for pregnancy.

Then, the embryo transfer can take place. IVF involves retrieving a woman’s mature eggs and the intended father’s sperm sample, combining the two in a laboratory dish. A fertilized embryo is then transferred to your uterus.

Once your pregnancy is confirmed you will start receiving your surrogate mother pay. These payments come in 10 monthly installments paid out by a third-party escrow service we partner with.

Other Things to Know About Becoming a Surrogate in Arlington

Surrogacy Laws and Legal Professionals

In 2003, House Bill 729 amended the Texas Family Code. This authorized surrogacy contracts between gestational mothers and intended parents while defining the parameters for these contracts that are valid and enforceable.

Judicial approval of these contracts is required before the process can continue.

Traditional surrogacy in Texas is treated like an adoption. That means there is a revocation period of 48 hours for the surrogate to give up her parental rights. For traditional surrogacies, all paperwork must be filed after birth and there are some restrictions on surrogate compensation.

FAQs About Surrogate Compensation in Arlington

Why Should Surrogate Mothers Be Paid?

Choosing to become a surrogate is choosing to become part of something bigger than yourself. The love, care and commitment you’re dedicating to creating a family for the intended parents is nothing short of heroic.

That heroism deserves top-tier surrogate pay in recognition of the sacrifices you’re making by fulfilling the dreams of the intended parents.

How Much Do Surrogates Get Paid Monthly?

There is no set amount for how much you can be paid monthly. That’s because the details of your situation will shape what your surrogate pay looks like. Your base surrogate compensation is calculated by looking at:

  • Your income
  • Your cost of living
  • Your experience with surrogacy

Once a pregnancy is confirmed, you will begin to receive your surrogate pay in 10 equal monthly installments.

How Much Do Surrogates Make for Twins?

Our surrogate pay rate is not determined per baby. You are not being paid for the baby, you are being paid for the time and effort the pregnancy takes.

You’ll receive $5,000 per multiple for the added physical and emotional exertion it takes. So, if you are having twins, you’ll make $10,000 for carrying them.

Do Surrogates Have to Pay Taxes in Arlington?

Yes, surrogates have to pay taxes in Arlington. The monthly surrogate payments you receive are your salary and compensation for the job of carrying the baby. That salary is taxable income.

You will receive a 1099 form during tax season from the third-party escrow service we partner with. If you don’t receive a form that does not mean the income isn’t taxable.

Reach out to a local tax accountant to ensure you are on the right side of the law when it comes to paying taxes on your surrogate compensation.

Do Surrogates Get Paid if They Miscarry?

Yes. Surrogates get paid if they miscarry. But you will only be paid up to the point the miscarriage occurs. Surrogacy payments stop if there is a loss of pregnancy.

What happens next is usually outlined in the surrogacy contract, but if you and the intended parents do decide to try again, payments will not resume until the pregnancy is confirmed.

Do Surrogates Get Maternity Leave in Arlington?

Yes, surrogates get maternity leave. The federal Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) gives you 12 weeks of unpaid leave.

We will reimburse you for any lost wages that you missed out on as a result of maternity leave.
