Is surrogacy legal in the United States?

There are no Federal laws governing surrogacy in the United States. This means it’s up to each state to decide how to handle surrogacy, and almost all of them have a unique approach.

While most states – forty-seven, to be exact – recognize and enforce gestational surrogacy agreements, Nebraska, Michigan, and Louisiana are exceptions, where such contracts are considered “illegal”.

If you’re an intended parent, you can become a parent no matter where you live. So the laws in the state where your surrogate lives – and will give birth – are the surrogacy laws that matter.

Why Choose a U.S. Surrogate?

As you prepare for your surrogacy journey, there is a lot to consider. While some may look at International Surrogacy, there are often additional costs and concerns many might not be aware of. In terms of expenses, there is considerable back and forth travel costs as well as hotel expenses, food, and other incidentals, and many other unexpected costs that can be incurred. In addition, in some countries, surrogacy is banned for foreign intended parents. This means there is a high risk of ethics and questionable practices.
