Expectant parents have several alternatives to natural conception and pregnancy of a child, including using a surrogate mother to carry an implanted embryo to term. For potential surrogates and expectant parents, it`s important to have a good understanding of surrogacy laws, which differ from state to state. This section contains articles and resources on laws relating to surrogate mothers and expectant parents, a checklist to help you design a legally safe surrogacy contract, the reasons why the help of a lawyer can help a surrogacy agreement run more smoothly, and much more. Children born to heterosexual couples who are not officially married or who are single parents by surrogacy are registered in accordance with the jus analogy (article 5 of the Family Code). In this case, a court decision may be required. On August 5, 2009, a street The Petersburg court definitively settled a dispute over whether single women could apply for surrogacy, and the state registration authority required a 35-year-old single mother, Nataliya Gorskaya, to register as the mother of her surrogate son.  Commercial surrogacy is punishable under the Human Reproductive Technologies Ordinance, 2000. The law is worded in such a way that no one can pay a surrogate mother, no surrogate mother can receive money, and no one can arrange a commercial surrogacy (the same goes for the delivery of gametes), no matter inside or outside Hong Kong. Usually, only the gametes of the intended parents can be used. Our surrogate mother is now a part of our lives – we regularly send emails and she comes to the UK to see the children. Florida regulates traditional surrogacy and surrogacy separately. Traditional surrogacy is called a „pre-planned adoption agreement“ with a „voluntary mother“ and requires judicial approval of the adoption.
The most important difference between them is that in the case of pre-planned adoptions, the biological mother has 48 hours after the birth of the child to change her mind, the adoption must be approved by a court, and the intended parents do not need to be biologically related to the child. On the other hand, under a surrogacy contract, the surrogate mother must agree to waive her rights to the child at birth, the intended mother must prove that she cannot safely maintain a pregnancy or give birth to a child, and at least one of the intended parents must be genetically related to the child. Both laws require the surrogate mother to undergo a medical examination; Make the surrogate parent the default parent if it turns out that an intended parent who is supposed to be a biological parent is not related to the child; limit the accepted payment methods; require the surrogate mother to be at least 18 years of age; and requiring intended parents to agree to accept any resulting child, regardless of the disability the child may have. Recruitment fees for traditional surrogates are prohibited. If you are a woman, you can consider a surrogate mother for several reasons: Under the new law, surrogacy is only allowed in married couples who do not have children together, after doctors confirmed that the woman cannot give birth even with technical support. The surrogate mother must be a relative of the husband or wife and have already given birth successfully. A woman can only be a surrogate mother once in her life and must present her husband`s consent if she is married. The embryo must be created by the sperm and egg of the intended parents.  The process must be voluntary and comply with the requirements of in vitro fertilization. In addition, infertility in the Hindu tradition is often associated with karma and therefore treated as a pathology to be treated.  This has led to a general acceptance of medical interventions to combat infertility among Hindus.  Therefore, surrogacy and other scientific methods of assisted reproduction are generally supported within the Hindu community.
 Nevertheless, Hindu women do not often use surrogacy as an option to treat infertility, although they often serve as surrogate mothers for Western couples.   When surrogacy is practiced by Hindus, it is more likely to be used within the family circle rather than involving anonymous donors.  Some jurisdictions explicitly prohibit only commercial and non-altruistic surrogacy. Even courts that do not prohibit surrogacy can rule that surrogacy contracts (commercial, altruistic or both) are void. .
