Surrogacy Law in AZ

Although Arizona’s Revised Statute deems surrogacy contracts as unenforceable, parentage through gestational surrogacy has been recognized and established favorably by Arizona courts since 1994.

Establishing parentage for surrogacy in Arizona is completed by way of a court order, before or after the birth, and in some instances, with added confirmation by way of of DNA testing. Some intended parents will require a post-birth second-parent or stepparent adoption in their home state or country.

Parents may be required to complete a second parent adoption in their home state to permanently amend the birth certificate, or obtain an out-of-state court order.
