Are you thinking about using a surrogate to enable you to have a baby, but you have questions surrounding Ukraine surrogacy law? If so, Global Surrogacy is here to answer your questions so that you can make the decision that is right for you.
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.
