Surrogacy in Washington

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