Canwest News Service / Wikipedia

ALBANY – Compensation surrogacy is now legal in New York State.

This after the Child-Parent Security Act went into effect this week.

The new law allows New York couples to enter a contract with a surrogate who is not genetically related to the embryo.

The law includes a surrogates’ bill of rights which provides them with the right to an independent lawyer and comprehensive healthcare.

Right now, compensation for carries varies anywhere from $25,000 to $50,000. The total cost for the process can cost an intended parent between $100,000 to $150,000.

Currently, Louisiana, Nebraska, and Michigan have laws that ban surrogacy. Indiana and Arizona have strict restrictions on the process.
