Favorable law.

Massachusetts statutes don’t directly address surrogacy agreements. But a number of cases from the state's highest court have treated surrogacy favorably. Finalizing arrangements for surrogacy in Massachusetts is typically done by pre-birth order, which allows the surrogate and intended parent complete all necessary paperwork before the birth even occurs. Some intended parents will require a post-birth second-parent or stepparent adoption. In either case, surrogates sign all necessary documents and generally won't ever need to appear in court.
