Florida Surrogacy Laws

Florida Surrogacy Laws

Gestational Surrogacy is permitted in Florida pursuant to Chapter 742 of the Florida Statutes. To establish a parentage order in Florida, the intended parents are defined as a married man and woman under state law. Should the intended parents be an unmarried couple or single individual, a Preplanned Adoption Agreement must be used.

Find a Florida Surrogate Mother

Helping intended parents find just the right surrogate mother in Jacksonville, Miami or any other city in the Sunshine state, Family Inceptions understands the criteria that is important to all intended parents.

  • Why are Miami, Ft. Lauderdale and other Florida cities a good location for finding surrogate mothers?
    • Large population
    • Several top fertility centers in the area
    • Friendly surrogacy laws
  • Are There Options for Unmarried Intended Parents?

    Florida surrogacy laws permit singles and unmarried couples to form a Pre-Planned Adoption Agreement, governed by Florida Statute 63.213. It is similar to a gestational surrogacy contract, but is handled under different Florida laws. Additionally, the court proceeding to remove the surrogate as the legal parent and name the intended parents as the legal parents takes place after the child’s birth.

  • Does Florida Surrogacy Law Allow for Pre-Birth Orders?

    Although, Pre-birth orders can be done in the state of Florida to direct the hospital and say who the parents are, it does not establish parentage order (to place names on the birth certificate) within the state of Florida. Under the statute, parentage final orders are done post birth.

  • Whose names go on the birth certificate?

    Currently, the Florida Bureau of Vital Statistics requires an initial birth certificate application be completed by the hospital immediately following the child’s birth, which lists the surrogate as the child’s birth mother. Upon entering the Final Order affirming parental status, the court will direct the Florida Bureau of Vital Statistics to amend the child’s birth certificate and the birth record to list the intended parents as the mother/parent and father/parent of the child. At this point, all surrogate’s information will be deleted from the birth record and a birth certificate will immediately be issued, which usually takes about three weeks to process. Same-sex couples will be named as “mother/parent” and “father/parent.”

Becoming a Surrogate Mother in Orlando and other Florida cities

After the health risks associated with the intended mother are established, the actual surrogacy contract itself must contain the following allowances:

  1. The gestational surrogate in Florida must be the only individual who can consent to the clinical intervention and management of the pregnancy.
  2. The Florida surrogate mother will agree to undergo reasonable medical treatment and adhere to reasonable medical advice on her prenatal health.
  3. The surrogate agrees to relinquish any and all parental rights upon the child’s birth.
  4. The intended parents agree to take custody of the child upon birth.
  5. The gestational surrogate agrees to assume parental rights for the child if neither one of the commissioning parents is the genetic parent.
