Gestational Surrogacy is generally permitted in Kentucky. There are no statutes or published
case law that specifically permits or prohibits surrogacy.
Pre-Birth Orders will usually be granted to Intended Parents who are married when at least
one shares a genetic relationship with the child and to single Intended Parents who are
genetically related to the child. Unmarried couples, regardless of genetic relationship to the
child, as well as non-genetic Intended Parents will typically be required to complete a
Post-Birth Adoption in order to secure their parental rights.
