Oklahoma Surrogacy Laws

Learn About the Laws Covering Surrogacy in Oklahoma

blog17If your fertility specialist has recommended surrogacy as the best option for you to have a baby – and you live in Oklahoma – you must ensure that your legal rights as Intended Parents are protected. This is because Oklahoma law makes contracts for surrogacy difficult to enforce.

Oklahoma Surrogate Law

Oklahoma does not have a law that explicitly sets forth surrogacy rights and responsibilities. Oklahoma’s laws for surrogacy are grounded in prohibitions against child trafficking. These laws prohibit the acceptance, offer or payment of compensation in connection with the transfer of legal or physical custody or adoption of a minor child. However, Oklahoma’s law do permit the payment of medical expenses for the birth mother of a child that is to be adopted.

Bottom Line: Surrogacy contracts only providing for medical expense reimbursement to a surrogate mother are legal and enforceable. Other terms of compensation or responsibilities of the surrogate mother pursuant to a contract will not be enforceable in an Oklahoma court of law.

Enforcement of Surrogacy Contracts
