Surrogacy Laws For Ukraine
The Surrogacy Laws in Ukraine
In Ukraine, it is completely legal for commercial surrogacy to go ahead, and it has been legal since 2002. To be considered for surrogacy in Ukraine, you must be in a straight married couple, and your marriage certificate will need to be seen.
The Ukrainian law allows for gestational surrogacy and “when an embryo is conceived by the spouses and implanted to another woman, the spouses shall be considered as the parents of the child.”, according to Ukrainian Family Code Article 123. This means that the surrogate mother will not have any parental rights towards the child.
Certain requirements need to be fulfilled for artificial insemination and embryo transfer. Consent must be given in writing between the surrogate and the intended parents.
In Ukraine, when applying for a birth certificate for the child, there needs to be a genetic link to at least one of the intended parents. If an egg or sperm donor is used, they will remain anonymous and therefore will not have any parental rights or names on the birth certificate. The surrogate will need to give written consent for the intended parents to be named on the birth certificate.
When you are thinking about having commercial surrogacy in Ukraine, you need to check the Ukraine surrogacy laws and the laws of your home country and state. Even though it is legal in Ukraine, you need to make sure that you are not committing a criminal offence. Consulting a lawyer is advised to ensure that you are following the law.
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 […]
