Surrogacy In New York

Making another family whole through surrogacy is a beautiful experience. With love and devotion, a woman can give a couple or individual a precious gift and help build a family separate from her own. Supporting these altruistic women along their surrogacy journey takes qualified professionals who have the compassion and expertise to guide them every step of the way.

At International Surrogacy Center, our staff consists of just those kind of empathetic and dedicated people. If you’re looking for a New York surrogacy center you can trust, look no further than ISC.

The Ins and Outs of Surrogacy in New York

New York is a surrogacy-friendly state with countless success stories. A recent and very favorable New York surrogacy law known as the Child Parent Security Act has made the process even more straightforward. The law sets forth certain requirements to make the process safe and better protect both parties. Once these are met, surrogacy contracts become legal and enforceable.

Of course, as the process involves legal specifications, it’s essential to speak with an attorney familiar with New York surrogacy regulations. At ISC, we retain a practiced legal team to walk both parties through the contract process and answer every question along the way.

Surrogacy Compensation

Legally speaking, New York allows gestational carriers to receive payment for services rendered. At ISC, we believe surrogate compensation is only fitting, since women make a considerable commitment when they become surrogates. Surrogates partnering with our agency can expect to earn between $65,000 and $75,000.

Payment isn’t the only thing our surrogates have to gain. We are proud that the women we work alongside become part of our community. Together, they can participate in monthly Zoom support group meetings, spa weekends and so many more opportunities to connect with others facing the same challenges.

The Right Agency Can Make a Difference

There are many surrogate agencies in New York, so it may take time and research to find the one that best aligns with your views and goals. Be sure to carefully compare agencies, experience of the staff, client reviews and so on before making your decision. You can also reach out for a meeting to gain a more thorough understanding of how a particular New York surrogacy center operates. That way, you are positive it is the right choice.

Surrogacy Is a Step-by-Step Process

Once you’ve found a New York surrogacy agency that fits, the next step in becoming a surrogate is to fill out an application. An interview is then scheduled to answer questions and create a profile for intended parents to look through. Once matched, a meeting is set up, the surrogate has a medical screening and, if everything goes well, the contract is signed.

Becoming an intended parent follows a similar route with a consultation to determine emotional and financial readiness before the matching process. It’s important to note that all parties must be in agreement before proceeding with the transfer of the embryo. Also, New York contracts cannot place limitations on a gestational carrier’s decisions regarding her body and medical care during the process.

New York Surrogacy FAQs

Who is eligible for surrogacy assistance in New York?

To become a surrogate in New York, you must be a long-term resident of the United States between ages  21 and 43. You also must have already had at least one healthy full-term birth without complications.

What’s the typical duration of the surrogacy process in New York?

Depending on various factors, the amount of time it takes surrogates and intended parents to navigate the surrogacy process is roughly one to two years. This depends a lot on how quickly they can be matched with compatible candidates. For intended parents who require an egg or sperm donor, the process most likely will take a few additional months.

Is there a likelihood of being connected to intended parents specifically from New York?

Although there is a chance that New York surrogates may be matched with intended parents from the same state, there is no guarantee that they will. As your New York surrogacy agency, we will do everything within our power to match you with your preferred family.

It’s important to note that many of the surrogates who work with us have found that there are qualities that make families more compatible with them than proximity. We encourage prospective surrogates to keep an open mind as they enter the process.

Does International Surrogacy Center have an office in New York?

Although we are well-versed in the nuances of the surrogacy process in the Empire State, we do not have a physical presence there. However, we do meet with our clients over Zoom to make staying in touch from anywhere in the country as convenient for them as possible. In addition, we can offer to fly individuals to visit our headquarters in California in-person under certain circumstances.
