Understanding the surrogacy laws in Georgia

In the United States, each state has its own laws regarding surrogacy. In addition, each country we assist has different requirements and laws regarding surrogacy. Therefore, our legal team ensures that the laws of the surrogate’s home state (where the delivery will take place) complement the laws of intended parents' home state/country (including laws around same sex parenting).

Georgia is a surrogacy-friendly safe. Intended parents and surrogates can enter into surrogacy contracts with confidence.

 Determining parentage in Georgia

Determining parentage in Georgia

Georgia is a very favorable state for surrogacy, despite no statutory of case law directly addressing surrogacy contracts in Georgia. Courts regularly establish parental rights for intended parents through a pre-birth declaratory judgment. The petition filed on behalf of the intended parent outlines the surrogacy arrangement, how the embryo(s) came to be created, how the transfer resulted in the pregnancy, and affirmation of the ongoing support for intended parents to be cleared the legal parents of the expected child. The judgment declares the intended parents as the legal parents and directs for the state of Georgia to create the child’s birth certificate listing the intended parents together (or the single parent alone).

The court process is very seamless – everything is handled between counsel for the intended parents and for the gestational carrier, with no in-person hearings required for the parties, making Georgia a desirable state for surrogacy.
