Gestational Surrogacy is specifically permitted by Washington’s Uniform Parentage Act (ARCW §§26.26A.700 – 26.26A.785). Compensated Gestational Surrogacy as well as Traditional Surrogacy arrangements that comply with the respective statutory framework are permitted in Washington.
Pre-Birth Orders are available in Gestational Surrogacy cases to any Intended Parent, regardless of marital status, genetic connection to the child, or sexual orientation, so long as the Gestational Carrier Agreement complies with the statutory requirements.
