    Surrogacy is legal in many states in the United States and in many countries. There are, however, some states and some countries where surrogacy is illegal. There are also places where surrogacy isn’t necessarily illegal, but the contracts are not recognized in court. This can lead to serious problems should something go wrong. In some places, only commercial surrogacy is illegal but surrogacy that does not involve compensation for the surrogacy itself is acceptable. Due to the complex nature of surrogacy, it’s important you speak to a lawyer before agreeing to any surrogacy arrangement. There are couples and surrogates who hope to arrange things privately, without the help of lawyers or an agency, in an effort to save money. This can lead to disastrous results. Sadly, there are people out there looking to scam possible surrogates and intended parents. For the couple’s and surrogate’s best interests, using a reputable agency (when using an unknown surrogate) and experienced lawyers (one lawyer for the couple and one for the surrogate) is the best course of action. Speak to your local RESOLVE, Path 2 Parenthood, or fertility clinic for guidance.


    What I believe is that no matter where this thing is legal or not. You don’t have to consider all such things. When there still exists some places that are offering legal surrogacy with full scale. Why do we have to bother that? Why everytime we have to look over the legal issues for the country we live in. You could have surrogacy in places where it is legal and affordable too.
    There has to be agreement from the clinic where you are taking services. That’s it. All the things are done for you.


    Surrogacy is not legal in many countries. It is legal in Uk and Europe. I have faced infertility for many years. I was so upset. I was getting old and I was not able to conceive a baby. In the end, I chose surrogacy for me. In Uk it is expensive. So I decided to go for surrogacy in Europe. I went there and now I have a baby. I am a happy mother now.


    Hey. There are laws for surrogacy. it is not lawful in many countries. Many people have no other option than surrogacy. My friend has faced infertility for 7 years. She was so upset. In this time her husband also became infertile. So, in the end, they decided to go for surrogacy. She chose a clinic in Europe. They have a daughter now.

    Thank you for this post. As you know surrogacy is banned in so many countries. Those people seek help from other countries in order to have a baby. you shared some valuable information here. Even I didn’t know about some of the things you mentioned. I was new to surrogacy back then, the people of the clinic I went really guided me through all this. I couldn’t have done it without them and my husband.

    Hey there Trisha. Thanks a lot for the post. This is really helpful. Surrogacy is banned in a lot of countries. However, people can seek to travel to other countries. Ukraine is very well known for surrogacy. However, indeed things should be done very carefully. I wish everyone good luck. Take care and lots of love.

    hey dear. how are you? great work there. this was informative. yes, indeed surrogacy is the sensitive procedure. all legal work should be done before. prevention of such disasters is needed. this was really thought-provoking. keep sharing such stuff. take care.


    Hi, I hope you are doing well. Surrogacy has provided lots of happiness to so many people. Infertility problems have increased in the past many years. It’s sad to see so many people suffering from this problem. No one deserves this. I am hearing these days many spam clinics also exist. There are clinics like Lotus and Adinos. You should avoid these clinics. Take care.

    Surrogacy is prohibited in many states. But it’s legal in Europe. I have done Surrogacy from the clinic in Europe. Surrogacy is the best procedure to have your own biological baby. IVF, on the other hand, is a painful procedure. I had some complications in the uterus. So I left infertile. But I immediately went for a concerned clinic in Europe. I have a baby girl now. And I am enjoying my motherhood.

    Hi there, i hope that you are doing well. Thank you so much for guiding about the surrogacy yes i know in some states surrogacy is illegal and some other the states surrogacy is legal. You describe the best ways for the surrogacy to properly arrange everything regarding the lawyer contribution and other legal statements. Once I was infertile at the age of 30 due to many time use of abortion in my life. That’s why I become mad in my life then i went for surrogacy and now i am living the happy life with my family. My baby was to due to good choice of clinic of the Ukraine. So, I’ll suggest you to not waste your time and money in some average clinic, visit Ukraine best clinic of the world Bio-Tex-Com with best services. Love for you and best wishes 🙂

    This is a very informative post, Trisha! People planning for surrogacy will find it very helpful. Thank you very much for this information. You’re totally right. Guiding people to do the right thing is essential. Personally, I think that surrogacy should be legalized throughout the world and these issues won’t even arise. Seeing people move to other countries for the surrogacy process is really not a good sight. The country you live in should take care of your problems. Well, the best is when the clinic takes responsibility for handling all the legal matters. Some clinics do handle it well and the patients don’t face any problem. But some fail to handle the situation and things get worse. It’s better to sort things before in order to stay on the safe side. I’m sure in favor of people having the process done by a clinic than privately. In some cases, surrogates deny to give the baby to intended parents and sadly, they can’t even do anything about it. Stay safe people!


    Hey there! How are you? Thank you for sharing an informative post here. Surrogacy is really a good process. I cannot conceive naturally. And it is the worst thing for me. But instead of losing hope, I went for the surrogacy. I am from Germany and surrogacy is banned in our country. So We to Ukraine for it. There are many good clinics for it. Now I am happy to announce we got a surrogate baby girl. It really works. It is like a blessing for the people like us. I am in support that it should be legalized in every state. People should support surrogacy and surrogate mothers. It is like a miracle. God bless you.


    You are right. I am happy to read all of this. It’s a really great information. I am so happy for you. This is a great procedure. I am really in a favor of this method. There are some states that don’t allow this process. They sad it’s wrong. It’ll be alright. They should never do that. I think it’s a great method. I never know why people do this. It’s really very bad.


    hey, Trisha, you are right. I totally agree with you. you know what happened to me. I mailed one of the clinics. They examined my reports. They said everything is suitable. Just come to our clinic. We will start your IVF procedure. I was happy because I mailed a lot of clinics. They never replied me back. I was feeling like I am the luckiest person who got a reply. But after some days they asked me about my country. As I live in Singapore. I told them and they said that there is not a single embassy of our clinic. Then I felt like this will create problems legally. That’s why I left this issue. Feeling so sad.


    Hey trisha, hope you are enjoying good health. Thanks for the post. It is quite informative. Surrogacy is a miracle. But they are some clinics who are doing scam in the name of treatment. Adonis clinic is one of them. I am a victim of that clinic. We should have to expose clinics like this. So that no one can waste their time and money later.
