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

Step 1: Contact Us

You can apply to get paid to be a surrogate in Scottsdale right now. Our form is easy to read and quick to fill out.   

Step 2: Complete Our Screening Process

Once you meet our basic requirements, you can start the screening process.

Some agencies have piles of paperwork and steps after steps to complete the screening process.

Our screening process is designed with your safety in mind, ensuring that you can be a surrogate, while making the process as smooth and straightforward as possible.

Step 3: Find the Best Intended Parents, Draft A Surrogacy Contract

This is one of the most important steps of the process. Finding the perfect match is something only you’ll know as the surrogate mother. But with our decades of experience in helping create families, we’ll be right there with you for any questions that arise.

Once you find the perfect match, you’ll need to create a surrogacy contract with separate legal representation. This legal contract is designed to protect your rights and interests. It must be signed before the medical aspect of your journey can begin. 

Step 4: Prepare for the Embryo Transfer

The first step in preparing for the embryo transfer is taking a regimen of fertility medications. These medications prepare your body for pregnancy.

An embryo will be created through in vitro fertilization (IVF). IVF involves taking the intended mother’s eggs and sperm from the intended father, combining the two to create an embryo. That embryo is then transferred to your uterus at an optimal point in your cycle.

Once a pregnancy is confirmed, the surrogate mother pay you agreed upon with the intended parents in your surrogacy contract can begin. 

Step 5: Give the Gift of Parenthood

Becoming a surrogate changes lives. You can return home and know that you’ve helped make dreams come true while getting the best pay that can now provide for you and your family’s future.

You’ll always be part of their story.

Other Things to Know About Becoming a Surrogate in Scottsdale

Surrogacy Laws and Legal Professionals

When it comes to surrogacy in Scottsdale, Arizona is a state where you need to proceed with caution.

Surrogacy contracts are illegal and unenforceable so anyone pursuing surrogacy here needs to think about the legal risks.  The statute that made surrogacy contracts illegal also said that the surrogate is the legal mother of the child, and if you’re married, your husband is the father. 

Instead of surrogacy contracts, some lawyers complete memoranda of understanding but they are not legally binding.

Here’s a list of local Arizona surrogacy attorneys you can speak with before you commit to surrogacy in this state:

  • Lincoln & Wenk, LLC (Phoenix, Goodyear, Peoria): With locations around the valley, Lincoln & Wenk LLC has a combined fifty years of experience and practices family law that includes surrogacy and assisted reproduction.
  • MyersStrickland, PLLC (Scottsdale, Tucson): Attorney and owner Heather Strickland is an experienced surrogacy attorney and became a partner of the firm in 2013. In 2014, she was invited to join the Academy of Adoption & Assisted Reproduction Attorneys and is the only Fellow of AAAA in Southern Arizona
  • Scottsdale Family Law (Scottsdale): Attorney Claudia D. Work is a current member of the State Bar of Arizona Family Law Executive Council and an Assisted Reproduction Fellow with the Academy of Adoption & Assisted Reproduction Attorneys.

FAQs About Surrogate Compensation in Scottsdale

Is Arizona Surrogate Friendly?

Gestational surrogacy is practiced in Arizona, but it’s not necessarily a surrogate-friendly state. Surrogacy contracts are prohibited, making them unenforceable, for all types of surrogacy. It’s a state where you need to be aware of the laws because of legal risk.

Why Should Surrogates Be Paid?

Surrogates should be paid because the service you are providing is transformational. You can change the lives of the intended parents who haven’t been able to experience parenthood for whatever reason.

Your compassion and willingness to help them realize their dreams deserves the best compensation possible.

Do Surrogates Get Paid Monthly?

Surrogates do get paid monthly. Payments usually begin from the start of a pregnancy. How much surrogates are paid depends on their base pay. Base pay is calculated by looking at experience, income and cost of living. It will be paid out in 10 monthly payments.

Do Surrogates Have to Pay Taxes in Scottsdale?

As a surrogate, you do have to pay taxes in Scottsdale. The income you earn as a surrogate is compensation for a service. You are getting the best pay for helping others’ dreams come true.

That compensation for a service means surrogate pay can be taxed. You will receive a 1099 form during tax season from the third-party escrow service that handles your payments. But even if you don’t, it doesn’t mean the income is tax-free.

We recommend speaking to a local tax accountant to ensure you follow all local tax laws.

How Much Do Surrogates Make for Twins?

You can make $10,000 as a surrogate for carrying twins with us. You make $5,000 per multiple but we do not pay you per baby you carry.

Our top-tier pay is in recognition of the additional physical and emotional efforts that go into carrying twins.

Do Surrogates Get Maternity Leave in Scottsdale?

Although the state doesn’t have any maternity leave laws, the federal Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) entitles you to 12 weeks of unpaid leave.

Do Surrogates Get Paid if They Miscarry?

Yes. You are paid if you miscarry. But once the miscarriage occurs, the payments stop as you are only paid for the time you are pregnant.

If you and the intended parents decide to try again, a pregnancy must be confirmed before payments can resume.
