International Parents

About International Surrogacy in the U.S.

Why Choose a U.S. Surrogacy Agency?

The United States is a desirable destination for international intended parents because surrogacy here is widely accepted, legal in most states and medically safe. And International Surrogacy Center (ISC) is the perfect U.S. agency to help you achieve your dream of starting or expanding your family.

Our surrogates undergo thorough medical and mental health screenings. You can rest easy knowing that they get the best health care in the world and have access to advanced medicine and top facilities. With medical offices and hospitals widely available, our surrogates can remain at home during most of the pregnancy, assisted by loving and supportive family members.

When your child is born here, he or she is automatically a U.S. citizen, gets a U.S. birth certificate and may obtain a U.S. passport with which to travel home safely. American lawyers will work on your behalf to establish your parental rights with either a pre- or post-birth parentage order or adoption, if necessary. 

The U.S. banking system is one of the most secure in the world. And ISC works with you to set up a bonded escrow account at a secure financial institution to protect your savings during the surrogacy process. You can also open a client account with one of our trusted attorneys that manage and act as fiduciaries. We are very carful with this option.

The Logistics of International Surrogacy

You won’t have to move to the U.S., but you may want to make several trips here in addition to the required trip to be here during the birth. You may want to meet the ISC team and your surrogate in person. You may want to be here during the embryo transfer. You are permitted to attend as many of your surrogate’s medical appointments as you wish; most intended parents want to be present during the 20-week ultrasound scan. And the most important — and longest — visit takes place during and after your baby’s delivery.

Most of our intended parents remain in the U.S. for at least a couple of weeks after the birth. You will attend court proceedings, make sure the birth certificate is correctly issued, apply for your baby’s passport and take care of any issues that may arise. Don’t worry if all this sounds daunting; we help you through the process every step of the way.
