Surrogacy in New York and The Child-Parent Security Act

Updated: Jan 26, 2021

The Child-Parent Security Act (CPSA) becomes effective February 15, 2021 bringing New York law in line with modern day advances in reproductive medicine.

The CPSA addresses the legal parentage of children conceived via assisted reproductive technology and third party reproduction arrangements involving donor gametes, donor embryos, and gestational carriers or surrogates.

The CPSA allows intended parents to enter into a legal contract to compensate a surrogate for carrying their baby and obtain a pre-birth order securing their legal parentage. The CPSA also provides a means for establishing legal parentage when using a donor egg, donor sperm, or donor embryo(s).

See an overview of the complete surrogacy journey mapped out below.
