Gestational Surrogacy is generally permitted in Alabama. There is no statutory law that expressly permits surrogacy and courts are typically favorable towards surrogacy arrangements. Code of Ala. §26-17-801 has been reserved for a provision on Gestational Agreements.
Pre-Birth Orders will usually be issued to a single Intended Parent who is biologically related to the child, or to Intended Parents who are married when at least one shares a genetic connection to the child. Unmarried couples will typically be denied a Pre-Birth Order and must instead secure their parental rights though a stepparent adoption after the child is born and after they have married.
