Surrogate Motherhood - The best surrogate mothers community



Virginia is one of the few states that has statutes governing surrogacy.

In VA, a surrogate, may enter into a written contract with intended
parents
where she relinquishes her rights to any children conceived by artificial conception.

Virginia law approves of uncompensated surrogacy agreements and payments
for
reasonable medical and ancillary costs.

After delivery, the Intended Parents may take amend the birth
certificate so that they are listed as the parents of the child.



ADDED:
Virginia Surrogacy Law

Virginia does recognize both traditional and gestational surrogacy. However, the laws are so complex and confining, it takes an experienced surrogacy attorney to sort through all the different laws to make sure every aspect is covered to the satisfaction of the surrogacy statutes in Virginia.

For instance, Virginia surrogacy law prohibits compensated surrogacy, as well as excluding same-sex couples from participation in surrogacy arrangements. In fact, Virginia surrogacy law mandates the intended parents be defined as a married man and woman.

It is also a criminal offense in Virginia to pay an agency or lawyer to find a surrogate. To make matters even more complex, the surrogate mother has up to 25 days after the birth to nullify the previous arrangements and keep the baby herself.

yeah that is pretty complex and it would suck if a ts or a gs were to do that to the IP who chose her to help them start their own family............that is pretty messed up if she were to do that...............

From what I have read "Surrogate" mother would be TS or GS. If I were an IP I would not be comfortable with the door being left open for the Surro to take custody.

Maybe a gs can change her mind too? It just says surrogate. I'd be interested to hear how other people take it to mean.

Angela did some research and sent this to me. Thought it would be helpful to add here. According to this, a TS has 25 days after birth to change her mind. Wow.
