Enforcement of Agreements
In Oklahoma, a surrogacy agreement (Agreement) is enforced under the Gestational Agreement Act (the Act). The Act outlines the required information contained in the Agreement.
Establishment of Legal Parentage
The Act allows Parent to secure legal parentage by the court validating the terms of the Agreement before transferring the embryo to the Gestational Surrogate.
Birth Certificates, Social Security Number and Passport
Oklahoma Vital Records office honors Oklahoma court orders and will prepare an amended birth certificate based off the validation of the Agreement under the Act. Reproductive Family Law Center handles obtaining copies of the birth certificate and will prepare the paperwork necessary for families to obtain social security numbers and passports for the child.
