Wyoming Surrogacy Laws

Wyoming Surrogacy Laws

There is no Wyoming case law or any state statute that prohibits would-be parents from practicing either gestational surrogacy or traditional surrogacy. As a result, both types of surrogacy are permitted and practiced throughout Wyoming cities like Cheyenne, Casper, and Laramie.

Laws Concerning Parentage Orders in Wyoming

Wyoming does not allow for its courts to grant pre-birth parentage orders. Under Wyoming statute, a proceeding to determine the parentage of a child born via surrogate may be commenced before the birth of the child, but it may not be concluded until after the birth (W.S. § 14-2-811.).  

Egg and Sperm Donor Law in Wyoming

Under Wyoming statute, a sperm donor or egg donor is not the parent of a child conceived by assisted reproduction (W.S. § 14-2-902.). An exception to this statute occurs in situations where a man provides sperm for or consents to assisted reproduction by a woman with the intent to be the parent of her child, in which case that man is the parent of the resulting child (W.S. § 14-2-903.).

Wyoming Stepparent and Second-Parent Adoption Law

Wyoming statute allows for a husband or wife to file a petition for a Wyoming stepparent adoption of a child if the other spouse is a parent of the child (W.S. § 1-22-104.).
