Determining parentage in Illinois

Establishing parentage for surrogacy in Illinois is a seamless process for everyone involved as Illinois’s statute permits for bypassing the involvement of a court and filing documents in accordance with the statutory requirements in anticipation of the delivery.

As long as all statutory requirements have been met and all statutory forms have been properly submitted before the delivery to both the delivering hospital and the Illinois Department of Public Health, parentage for the intended parents will be established as of the moment of birth.
