Tennessee Surrogacy Laws
There is only one statute concerning Tennessee surrogacy whether you live in Memphis, Knoxville or any other part of the state. Contracts are neither allowed nor disallowed by Tennessee Code Annotated §36-1-102(48). Instead, the statute says that adoptions or surrenders are not required for surrogacies and defines surrogacy such that it only applies when married couples work with their own eggs and sperm to have a baby with a surrogate. The statute doesn't apply if you use donated eggs or sperm.
