Alaska Surrogacy Laws

Alaska Surrogacy Laws

There is no Alaska case law or any Alaska statute that prohibits would-be parents from practicing gestational surrogacy or traditional surrogacy within Alaska. Both types of surrogacy are permitted in this state and are practiced throughout cities like Anchorage, Fairbanks, and Juneau.

Law Concerning Parentage Orders in Alaska

In 2014, an Alaskan court granted a pre-birth parentage order to a heterosexual married couple who used their own egg and sperm to conceive their child. Traditionally, Alaska has used a post-birth adoption process for children born to parents who employed the use of a gestational surrogate.

Attorneys in Alaska are optimistic that more pre-birth orders will be issued, but obtaining a post-birth adoption remains the practiced norm for children born to intended parents through the use of a gestational surrogate.

Egg and Sperm Donor Law in Alaska

There is no Alaska case law or statute that addresses the rights of sperm donors or egg donors over the resulting sperm, eggs, embryos, or children born of assisted reproduction.

Alaska Stepparent and Second-Parent Adoption Law

In Alaska, a stepparent or second-parent adoption does not require that the stepparent or second parent is married to the child’s biological parent (AS. § 25.23.020, AS. §25.23.010.).
