The Child-Parent Security Act was recently passed in New York State, legalizing gestational surrogacy. It took effect February 15 of this year.
The law will allow for compensation for gestational surrogacy, something that couples used to need to go outside the state for.
It will also repeal the existing statute for the state that declares compensated surrogacy contracts void and unable to be enforced. The new law will grant pre-birth parentage orders.
