Connecticut Surrogacy Laws

Connecticut Surrogacy Laws

Gestational surrogacy is permitted in Connecticut by statute (Conn. Gen. Stat. §7-48a.). In gestational surrogacy situations, the statute orders Vital Records to issue a Connecticut birth certificate naming the intended parents on the birth certificate in accordance with a court order.  

Traditional surrogacy is permitted in Connecticut because no statute or case law prohibits it. As a result, both types of surrogacy are permitted and practiced in cities like Bridgeport, New Haven, and Hartford.
