Surrogacy in US/Canada
The legal framework of surrogacy in many States of the US means a more structured process than you might expect in the UK, shorter timeframes to be matched with a surrogate and legally enforceable surrogacy agreements. Combined with the robust legal certainty surrounding parentage at birth, the US is a good option for some people. However, surrogacy in the US is prohibitively expensive for many people and means that you cannot be as involved in a pregnancy as you would at home.
In Canada, the legal framework is also more robust compared to the UK however, like in the UK, surrogacy arrangements can only be altruistic, meaning you cannot pay a surrogate over and above reasonable expenses incurred throughout the entire surrogacy process.
If you would like to consider surrogacy abroad, we will work with you so that you can fully understand the legal, financial and logistical complexities of international surrogacy to make an informed decision.
You may also want to consider a hybrid option, available in both the US and Canada, whereby you can create embryos in the UK and ship them to US or Canada to use with a surrogate.
At My Surrogacy Journey, we will guide you through every step of the process and ensure that you are supported by the most experienced clinics, agencies and lawyers in both countries.
