Vermont expressly permits gestational surrogacy under the Vermont Parentage Act, allowing Circle Surrogacy to successfully match surrogates with intended parents there. Establishing parentage for surrogacy in Vermont is a seamless process for everyone involved and is typically done by way of a pre-birth order, which allows the surrogate and intended parents to complete all necessary paperwork and obtain the parentage order before the birth occurs. In general, the parties do not ever need to appear in court.
