Surrogacy in Washington

Washington’s newly passed “Uniform Parentage Act”, which took effect on Jan 1, 2019, legalizes compensated gestational surrogacy. The new law provides Intended Parents and Gestational Carriers a clear path to a valid and enforceable contract and a legal parentage process.

You can expect to establish your parental rights regardless of whether you are single, partnered or married, and whether or not you are a genetic parent or working with a donor. The process is similar if you are working with a married or single woman as your surrogate. Northwest Surrogacy Center, LLC has a strong referral base of established and experienced attorneys licensed in Washington to assist you in securing a legal relationship with your child.

Advantages of a Washington Surrogacy:

  1. Surrogacy is legal in Washington state.
  2. You will establish that you are the child’s legal parents through a legal and administrative process.
  3. Your name(s) will be on the child’s birth certificate after you have completed the legal process.
  4. Washington is a progressive state with world-class medical care and many options for international travelers.
