Circle Surrogacy is excited to start working with women from New Jersey under the new law! Become a surrogate and change two lives – theirs and yours.
Governor Phil Murphy has signed the bill that legalizes gestational surrogacy in the Garden State!
The new law, entitled The New Jersey Gestational Carrier Act, recognizes contracts for gestational surrogacy arrangements. The state’s comprehensive law protects the rights of the surrogate, the intended parents and the baby. This will make New Jersey an excellent setting for surrogacy, protecting all of the parties involved.
