There have been a lot of uncertainties about surrogacy in Mexico, but since 2021 it is once again to be able to carry out surrogacy programs. What has made the surrogacy program possible again? It has become possible by a judicial sentence of June 2021, where the Supreme Court ruled in favour of surrogacy and stablished that each state has to regulate it. It also ruled that the surrogate mothers can be compensated for some expenses, but cannot use their own eggs.
The programs include obtaining a court order that approves the terms of the agreement signed between the surrogate mother and the future parents. This court order stablishes that the name of the future parents will be written on the baby’s birth certificate, and guarantees that the childbirth will be a process without any problem from a legal perspective. This court order is requested at the beginning of the surrogacy program.
