In Minnesota, intended parents may be able to establish legal parentage primarily through the process of obtaining a pre-birth parentage order, but due to the lack of explicit pre-birth order statutes, intended parents should be prepared for a post-birth legal process to establish parentage. This may involve a petition for adoption, such as a stepparent or second-parent adoption, especially in cases where the intended parent(s) have no genetic link to the child. The court reviews the circumstances of the surrogacy arrangement, including the surrogacy agreement, to ensure that establishing the intended parents’ legal parentage serves the child’s best interests.
