Surrogacy in Texas
Gestational surrogacy is a great option to create a family. However, the process can be overwhelming at times. Surrogacy laws and regulations vary from state to state and if you are planning a surrogacy journey, as an intended parent or a surrogate, it is crucial for you to understand the state specific legal aspects of surrogacy. Below, we walk you through the basics of Texas surrogacy law.
Is Gestational Surrogacy Legal in Texas?
Gestational surrogacy for married couples is entirely legal in Texas. If you are pursuing this option, you can find laws pertaining to your rights in the Texas Family Code.
The Importance of a Surrogacy Contract
A surrogacy contract is a legal document that both the intended parents and a surrogate sign before the surrogacy process begins. Texas requires a judge’s approval on the document, and parties must complete the document at least two weeks before the embryo transfer appointment.
The surrogacy contract is very important for both parties. For surrogates, the document outlines medical rights and agreed-upon compensation. For intended parents, the state of Texas allows them to establish legal parentage in a surrogacy contract. Please note that this document is only a legal guarantee for married couples. However, single intended parents and unmarried couples can also obtain these rights. If you are unmarried and wish to proceed with surrogacy, consult a surrogacy lawyer for guidance on your situation.
LGBTQ Surrogacy Law in Texas
Surrogacy for gay men is a popular way to start a family. Thanks to marriage equality, Texas now guarantees the same surrogacy rights for LGBTQ married couples as they do for heterosexual married couples. Like unmarried heterosexual couples, unmarried LGBTQ couples may need to complete an adoption process after the birth of their child if they cannot establish parentage in a surrogacy contract.
Thinking About Becoming a Surrogate in Texas?
Being a surrogate is a way to change a family’s life forever. Surrogates help others have children when it otherwise would not be a possibility. Texas also allows surrogate mothers to receive compensation for the time and effort that they dedicate to the surrogacy process. If you are a healthy, financially-stable woman who has already given birth to and raising a child, you might qualify to become a surrogate.
