Yes, Washington is considered a surrogacy-friendly state, supported by explicit statutory laws that govern surrogacy. The Washington Uniform Parentage Act provides a clear legal framework for surrogacy agreements, making it one of the states with explicit legislation supporting gestational surrogacy. This act ensures that surrogacy agreements are legally recognized and enforceable, allowing pre-birth parentage orders to be obtained by any intended parent, irrespective of their marital status, sexual orientation, or genetic link to the child. This legal environment in Washington offers a consistent and supportive approach to surrogacy across the state, minimizing the uncertainties and variability often encountered in jurisdictions without specific surrogacy legislation. Washington’s laws are designed to be inclusive, supporting a diverse range of intended parents in their journey to establish legal parentage and build their families through surrogacy.
