Gestational Surrogacy Laws in New York

Gestational surrogacy involves a surrogate carrying a child conceived through in vitro fertilization (IVF) using the intended parents' or donor's egg and sperm. In New York, gestational surrogacy is regulated by the Child-Parent Security Act (CPSA), which provides legal protection for intended parents and surrogates.

Surrogacy Contracts

Surrogacy contracts are permitted in New York under NY Family Court Act §§ 581-203, 581-401, 581-406.

Surrogacy contracts are a fundamental aspect of any surrogacy journey, providing a clear framework for all parties involved. In New York, surrogacy contracts must adhere to the requirements set forth by the CPSA. Our experienced team will guide you through the contract process, ensuring that your surrogacy journey begins on a solid legal footing.

Establishing Parentage

New York surrogacy law allows for both parents to obtain parental rights through a pre-birth order if at least one parent is genetically related to the child.

These orders are obtained through the family court system and are an essential legal step in securing the intended parents' parental rights. Pre-birth orders help streamline the process, ensuring that the intended parents are legally recognized as the child's parents from the moment of birth.

American Surrogacy assists clients in obtaining pre-birth orders, working closely with surrogacy attorneys to navigate the legal process efficiently and effectively.
