There are a number of legal issues involved in surrogacy arrangements abroad.
With IVF surrogacy in Mexico, legal contracts not only enumerate the rights and obligations for both parties, but also the intricate details regarding the baby’s birth so parents can bypass adoption proceedings.
The laws regarding surrogacy drastically vary from country to country.
What Does the Law Say?
As of January 14, 2016 — all surrogacy arrangements in Mexico will have to comply with specific requirements, including the approval from the "Secretaría de salud del estado" (Health Regulations Department of the State).
Changes tn the law:
- ONLY heterosexual couples who are Mexican citizens will be allowed to participate in surrogacy arrangements in Mexico.
- Foreigners (including LGBT singles and couples) are RESTRICTED from surrogacy in Mexico. (Learn more about the CARE program in California)
