What Is The Illinois Gestational Surrogacy Act?
To address the growing popularity of surrogacy and safeguard the rights of all parties involved, Illinois lawmakers passed the Illinois Gestational Surrogacy Act of 2005. It lays out several requirements for the gestational surrogate and the intended parents.
As long as all parties meet these requirements and the gestational surrogate gives birth to the child in Illinois, you and your partner’s names can go directly onto the birth certificate. You usually do not need to acquire a pre-birth or post-birth parentage order and instead assume full parental rights.
