Next Steps After Finding a Surrogate

After finding a surrogate in Missouri, you’ll be asked to connect us with your fertility clinic so that we can send them the surrogate’s information for review. If the clinic approves, they will send her your details. If she expresses mutual interest, you’ll be able to get to know each other over a Zoom call. If both of you want to move forward together, you can officially accept the match.

If you don’t have a clinic or embryos created, you will want to start that process as soon as possible because a match cannot be finalized until then. Your dedicated surrogacy specialist will be there to help you find a reputable clinic via our extensive network of professionals or you can explore clinics in your state below:

Other Things to Know About Surrogacy in Missouri

In Missouri, surrogacy remains a largely unregulated area of law. While there are no specific statutes governing surrogacy arrangements, the state generally recognizes and enforces surrogacy agreements. However, it's crucial for intended parents and surrogates to navigate this legal landscape carefully and ensure that all parties are protected throughout the process.

Consulting with a knowledgeable legal professional who specializes in reproductive law is highly recommended to understand the nuances of surrogacy in Missouri. We can connect you with a legal professional in our network or you can find one in your state below:

Establishing Parentage

Missouri does not currently grant parentage orders in surrogacy arrangements. While surrogacy agreements are generally recognized and enforced, intended parents may need to pursue alternative legal avenues to establish their parental rights.

This often involves a more complex legal process compared to states where parentage orders are routinely granted. Experienced legal professionals specializing in reproductive law can help you navigate the intricacies of surrogacy and ensure that your parental rights are protected.
