An Update on Becoming a Surrogate in New York

February 18, 2019 • admin • Becoming a Surrogate in NY

The state of New York does not recognize surrogacy contracts. State law does not give surrogates living in New York a legal avenue for entering into an enforceable contract. Any contract entered into by a surrogate living in New York will be unenforceable in court should a dispute arise.

State Surrogacy Laws

The laws and regulations covering gestational surrogacy change yearly in every state across the country. Because gestational surrogacy is becoming more socially accepted, New York may eventually evolve to recognize these contracts. The best news: New Beginnings Surrogacy will help ensure Intended Parents living in New York enter into an enforceable contract with a Surrogate Mother living in a surrogacy-friendly state.

Intended Parents Living in New York

Intended Parents must search for a surrogate mother living in a surrogacy-friendly state – she cannot reside in New York.

Enforceable Surrogate Contract                                                                                  

Once a match has been made with an out-of-state surrogate mother, a solid surrogacy contract will secure the rights and responsibilities of all parties – before, during and after birth. To protect and preserve your rights of both the intended parents and the surrogate mother, you must work through a reputable gestational surrogacy agency.

An enforceable surrogacy contract must encompass a clear definition of your rights and liabilities in the case of:

  • IVF failure(s)
  • Pregnancy complications
  • Multiple pregnancy
  • Birth complications

Surrogate Process in Brief

  • An egg is retrieved from the intended mother and fertilized with the intended father’s sperm (or donor sperm)
  • The cultured embryo is then transferred to the surrogate mother’s uterus
  • The surrogate mother then carries the pregnancy to full term
  • The intended parents are intimately involved with the pregnancy
  • The intended parents are present at the birth of the baby to assume legal parental rights and responsibilities

Gestation surrogacy may be achieved in a variety of methods using:

  • Intended mother’s eggs
  • Donor eggs
  • Intended father’s sperm
  • Donor sperm
