Gestational Surrogacy is expressly permitted by Arkansas Code §9-10-201. Arkansas Vital Statistics names both parents on the birth certificate – regardless of gender- so long as the couple is married (Pavan v. Smith, 137 S. Ct. 2075).
Pre-Birth Orders are generally issued to married couples or single Intended Parents when at least one shares a genetic relationship to the child.
