These days, you don’t have to wait until you find a long-term partner to have the experience of parenthood. Many people decide that they want to become parents without having to get married or go through the personal experience of pregnancy. Surrogacy for single parents can be a great choice for single mothers and single fathers who want the excitement and joy of parenthood. At International Surrogacy Center, we can walk you through the process and help you determine if surrogacy for singles is right for you.
SURROGACY FOR SINGLE PARENTS
SINGLE-PARENT SURROGACY PROCESS
If you’re new to the concept of surrogacy, you should know that becoming an intended parent as a single person isn’t that different from the surrogacy process for couples. That is, you’ll need to find a surrogacy agency that can provide great support for you and feels like a good fit. The agency will confirm that you can afford to pay the costs for the surrogacy journey. Once you meet these requirements, you can work with the agency to match with a surrogate.
When you search for agencies, you should make sure that the agency you choose has experience with surrogacy for singles. If the agency works with surrogates in locations that increase restrictions on single parenthood, you may want to ask how they can help you work toward an ideal result.
SINGLE-PARENT SURROGACY LAWS
For the most part, you can expect single-parent surrogacy laws to be similar to surrogacy laws for couples. Of course, surrogacy laws are relatively new in many places, including the United States. Shifting options and attitudes for surrogacy means that laws can differ significantly from one state to another. It’s important to consider the laws of the surrogate’s resident state and to talk with legal experts who understand the laws in that location.
Working with surrogates outside of the country can add more complication to the process. Surrogates who live in locations that stigmatize single parenthood may make it more difficult for single intended parents to establish parental rights over the child. At International Surrogacy Center, we work with experienced legal experts who can help you become a single parent through the surrogacy process.
