Every match between intended parents and their surrogate mother is custom designed to take advantage of the most favorable state gestational surrogacy laws available. SSA recruits surrogate mothers from states with enforceable court approved contracts under their surrogacy laws, offering protection for both intended parents and their surrogate mother. Your SSA staff attorney will guide you through the legal process and gestational surrogacy laws, from drafting the surrogacy contract to obtaining court recognition of your status as parents. SSA arrangements are structured to eliminate the legal uncertainty in gestational surrogacy arrangements, resulting in peace of mind for both intended parents and surrogate mothers. In SSA gestational surrogacy arrangements, the intended parents are placed directly onto their child’s birth certificate, even if an egg donor or sperm donor is involved, without the need for an adoption, and the surrogate mother is not reported on the birth certificate.
