Family Source only accepts Surrogates into our program who reside in the United States. There currently is not a nationwide law regarding surrogacy in the United States; rather, each state has its’ own surrogacy laws. Fortunately, our agency has offices in the MOST surrogacy-friendly states in the United States. Keep in mind, even if Intended Parents live in a state or country where surrogacy or “paid surrogacy” is considered illegal (or the laws are undefined) this does not mean they cannot pursue surrogacy to build their family. It simply means that Intended Parents will be matched with a Surrogate who lives and will deliver in a “surrogacy-friendly” state. Surrogacy laws in the United States and around the world are ever-changing; Family Source is happy to recommend Intended Parents to a reputable collaborative reproduction attorney who can provide them with professional legal counsel.
* Family Source can help you determine what the surrogacy laws are in your particular state; however, because we are not attorneys, we cannot advise you legally. When working with our agency, you will be referred to a reputable collaborative reproduction attorney who can provide you with professional legal counsel.
