Intended Parents

We will give you a solid understanding of what to expect.
Surrogacy family

Heterosexual couples

Married heterosexual couples can access all of our surrogacy programs – Argentina, Colombia, Ukraine, Greece, Georgia and Mexico.  In all of those jurisdictions, you will obtain a birth certificate with both of your names as parents of the child.

There is no requirement to have been married for a certain period of time. You cannot access Ukraine as a de facto (common law) couple if you are not legally married. Previous clients in this situation have undertaken a civil registry marriage service to access the Ukraine program. In Ukraine, Georgia and Greece, you will need to present a varying degree of evidence to show that you are unable to carry children or conceive yourselves. Ukraine has the most stringent requirements in this regard.

Gay Father With Their Kids

Gay Couples

Gay couples can access our surrogacy programs in Argentina, Colombia and Mexico without any restrictions.  

Gay couples cannot currently access our surrogacy programs in Ukraine, Georgia, or Greece.

CLAIMS BY ANY AGENCY THAT YOU CAN UNDERTAKE SURROGACY AS A SINGLE PARENT OR GAY COUPLE IN UKRAINE OR GEORGIA SHOULD BE TREATED WITH SKEPTICISM AND EXTREME CAUTION.  IT CAN ONLY BE DONE BY BREAKING THE LAW OR LYING ABOUT A RELATIONSHIP.

In Colombia, each man of a gay couple can enter an agreement with a separate surrogate mum, but the two men can share the eggs from one egg donor.  This is called “egg-splitting”.  

Currently, gay men, even as a single man, cannot access the surrogacy program in Greece. However, in 2015 the parliament legalised civil partnerships for gay couples, and in 2018 gay couples were allowed to foster children.  The LGBT community in  Greece remains hopeful that marriage and eventually surrogacy will become accessible to same-sex couples.  

Cheerful mother with her surrogate baby

Lesbian Couples

Lesbian couples can access the surrogacy programs in Argentina, Mexico and Colombia. In Greece  one mother will have her name on the birth certificate.  In Argentina, Colombia and Mexico both mothers can have their names on the birth certificates.

Each woman in a gay relationship can access the surrogacy program in Greece as a single woman.  Upon birth, the birth certificate will show only the name of the biological mother.

Single father with surrogate child

Single Men or Women

Single men or women can access the surrogacy programs in Argentina, Mexico or Colombia provided they have a biological link to the child.  Although these programs will also allow intended parents who do NOT have a biological link to the baby you should check carefully whether the country of your citizenship will allow this process.  Birth certificates will be issued for the children showing just one parent – the single IP in Mexico, Argentina and Colombia.

Single women can access the surrogacy program in Greece.  At birth the child’s birth certificate will show only the mother’s name – being the biological mother.
