Domestic Surrogacy Lawyers for Colorado, Oklahoma, and New York
Colorado, Oklahoma, and New York, like each U.S. state each have their own Surrogacy laws and timeframes.
In Colorado, once matched with a Gestational Carrier, you will want to contact a Surrogacy Attorney to assist in drafting or reviewing your Gestational Carrier Agreement. Once the agreement is signed by all parties, legal clearance will be issued and transfer can begin. Once the Gestational Carrier is 20 weeks pregnant, the parentage process begins.
In New York’s surrogacy process, after the Gestational Carrier Agreement is signed by all parties, you can start the medical transfer process. New York statute governing surrogacy recently went into effect in the State of New York and is available for New York residents.
Oklahoma follows the Oklahoma Gestational Agreement Act. According to this legislation, transfer cannot take place until a Validation Order is signed by a Judge. Your Surrogacy Attorney will draft your Gestational Carrier Agreement along with drafting your parentage documents. The agreement and parentage documents will then be filed together for a Judge to review and sign. Once signed, the transfer process can begin. After the birth of the child, your Attorney will obtain all finalized documents for the case and obtain the birth certificate with the Intended Parents name listed.
