USA Surrogacy and International Intended Parents
Wednesday, February 15, 2017
In the United States, people who have fertility problems are blessed with laws in many states that make it relatively easy for them to enter into a surrogacy arrangement with a surrogate they can trust and become the parents that they've always dreamed of being.
But in other parts of the world, surrogacy is simply not an option. Several European governments either make surrogacy illegal or make it next to impossible to qualify for an approved surrogacy arraignment, making the practice not quite illegal, but essentially against the law. In Belgium commercial surrogacy is not legal, but altruistic surrogacy is legal. In the Netherlands, for example, surrogacy is legal, but it's only legal under very specific conditions, making it difficult to even try to get involved in a surrogacy arrangement. Italy has completely outlawed surrogacy. In France surrogacy is illegal however, French intended parents often pursue surrogacy abroad and then return back to France.
Essentially, these laws ban couples from becoming parents easily without leaving their country. That's why we are proud of our international surrogacy program at CSP. We don't think anyone should be denied the chance to become a parent based strictly on where they live, so we make it as easy as possible for both the families and the surrogate to have a smooth and easy process that brings adults from two countries together to help create a new family.
Trusting your surrogacy to an agency in another country can make many people feel very nervous. We understand how much it takes for you to commit to our program when you're living in another country and we make sure to give you peace of mind concerning the care and professionalism with which we treat all of our surrogacy contracts. You will make several trips to the United States during your surrogacy journey. Most intended parents will make three separate trips, allowing them to interact with their surrogate, her family, and the doctors who will bring their new child into the world. Each of these trips will be a perfect opportunity for you to make yourself more comfortable with the international surrogacy that you and your surrogate are undergoing together.
We know that, as a citizen of another country, you might be unfamiliar with United States' laws, our requirements, and the English language. That's why we're here to help you every step of the way and make it as easy as if the United States' laws for surrogacy existed in your home country. One thing you should know is that upon birth, your child will officially be a citizen of the United States, meaning that he or she will hold a United States passport and be eligible for all of the benefits of citizenship. The lawyers that are associated with CSP will be retained by you to complete the legal aspects of the birth of your baby. These attorneys are very experienced in international surrogacy arrangements and often present international at surrogacy seminars and conferences.
Above all, the best reason to choose surrogacy in the United States is because it offers the best chance for your family to become whole in the way that you have always dreamed. At CSP, approximately fifty-two percent of our clients are international. We want this to be a positive experience for you, your partner, and everyone else associated with the arrival of a new baby. We are here to advise and direct you through this process. We have been helping intended parents create families for over 37 years and we are very proud of the work we do at CSP. We love welcoming new parents into our family at CSP, regardless of what country they come from. Surrogacy is a unique experience that is truly unforgettable for all the right reasons!
