In the state of Connecticut, when intended parents of any background (heterosexual couples, same-sex couples, single individuals) work with Connecticut surrogate mothers, the legal process is simple and easy.

Arguably the most favorable surrogacy case of recent years was decided in Connecticut in 2011. Raftopol v. Ramey is a Connecticut Supreme Court decision that allows pre-birth orders for non-biological parents.

The case clarified Connecticut's surrogacy statute, and makes the legal process simple for Connecticut surrogates and their intended parents. Circle Surrogacy is proud to have helped bring about this clarification in the law. Our attorneys filed an amicus brief which helped the court come to its decision.

Determining parentage in Connecticut.

It is relatively simple to establish your parental rights in the state of Connecticut.

Connecticut grants prebirth orders, and both parents can be declared legal parents if at least one parent is genetically related to the child for both single and coupled, married or unmarried, gay or straight intended parents, even when using an egg or sperm donor.

Also, both parents can be declared legal parents if neither parent is genetically related to the child for both single and coupled, married or unmarried, gay or straight intended parents.

Even though it's one of the smallest states, Connecticut is in a geographically favorable location. Connecticut is home to some of the world's best IVF clinics, and many of Circle's intended parents that live in New York, Boston or in Europe travel to Connecticut to work with top reproductive endocrinologists.

Also, while it's not always the case, Connecticut surrogate mothers tend to have less need for traveling to IVF clinic appointments if their intended parents are working with a CT IVF clinic.
