About

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.
