Laws About Gay Surrogacy
What is the Law Surrounding Surrogacy for Gay Couples or Singles?
We understand that the gay surrogacy laws can be confusing and the process frustrating. Global Surrogacy is run by a gay couple who have first-hand experience of the surrogacy process, including all the stresses that can go with it.
As well as having first-hand experience, they also have experience with working in the allied health and legal industries, so they are in the best position to advise others about surrogacy laws.
As a gay couple, you are completely eligible to access a surrogacy program within the state of California in the USA. Surrogacy programs are available no matter what your sexual orientation is, and you do not need to be married. This is one of the reasons that California is considered to be the most surrogate-friendly state. Consequently, it also carries the heftiest price tag. It has been legal since 2013.
Similarly, in Texas, gay couples can also take advantage of the surrogacy programs on offer but, unlike California, they need to be married.
For lesbian couples, depending on the state, some laws around gay surrogacy will allow both mothers to be named on the birth certificate, and others will only allow one. For further clarification, please contact us.
As a single gay man or woman, you can also access the program in Russia, but this is only available to singles and not couples. When the birth certificate is issued, it will only list one intended parent on it.
Single women can also use the surrogacy program in Greece, but this is not available for single men or gay couples.
A brief outline of the step-by-step process of surrogacy is as follows:
IPs complete a profile and bio and undertake blood tests and sperm analysis (as applicable)
IPs provide identity documents and a Police check
IPs sign agreement with Global Surrogacy;
IPs obtain a medical letter setting out their medical indications for surrogacy;
IPs obtain ORIGINAL marriage, birth and change of name certificates;
IPs pay the first instalment in accordance with the Global Surrogacy invoice;
IPs are offered a surrogate mother;
Under our direction IPs will be assigned a Greek lawyer to prepare surrogacy agreement and court documents;
IPs travel to Greece to execute the surrogacy agreement, undergo testing and assessment by the clinic and commence the court application
IPs will meet all relevant clinic staff and provide their instructions on embryo transfer to the clinic
IPs provide gametes or embryos if applicable
Some of our posted surrogacy news.
I recently read a Spanish media report that highlighted problems and delays being faced by Spanish IPs undertaking surrogacy in Ukraine. It reported on concerns the Spanish consular staff in Kiev had with the legitimacy of some surrogacy arrangements undertaken by Spanish nationals. It was also the Spanish consular officials who had some days earlier […]
Further to our last post that the Ukrainian laws with respect to surrogacy and access by foreign IPs to their programs I note that the Ukrainian clinic/agency that was advertising the “shut-down” of surrogacy is now promoting surrogacy options again. In this industry double-check or triple-check all claims made on the internet or through social […]

Global Surrogacy enabled us to achieve our dreams by helping us bring our babies home. We had twins born through surrogacy in America and Global Surrogacy explained everything we needed to do and helped us every step of the way. They were always contactable and went out of their way to make it happen as smoothly as possible.
