What are the surrogacy laws in Illinois?

Illinois is a surrogacy-friendly state with a Gestational Surrogacy Act in place. There are two main components of gestational carrier laws in Illinois to keep in mind:

-The intended parents have parental rights over a child (or children) resulting from their gestational surrogate’s pregnancy – however, the law does not pertain to surrogacy agreements wherein the surrogate also supplies her own donor egg

-The Illinois Gestational Surrogacy Act makes no mention of LGBT intended parents; however the Illinois Appellate court has sanctioned adoption for LGBT parents, which suggests the state might be open to upholding LGBT intended parents’ rights when it comes to gestational surrogacy

What is surrogacy?

Surrogacy is an agreement between a surrogate mother – who is not biologically related to the baby she will carry during pregnancy – and the intended parents of that baby. The agreement is also called a gestational agreement. A surrogate mother provides a womb for a baby’s gestation in exchange for financial compensation.

What is the surrogacy process like?

The surrogacy process can be a positive and rewarding experience for both surrogate mother and prospective families – especially when a surrogacy agency is employed to manage the emotional, legal and financial aspects of the journey. Many women choose to become surrogates because they love the idea of helping a couple who can’t become pregnant bring a new baby into this world. Hence, there is a lot of loving emotion and hope that goes into surrogacy.

How much does it cost to use a surrogate in Illinois?

The cost of a surrogacy journey in Illinois is between $100,000 and $125,000. This includes the agency fee, surrogate psychological evaluation, surrogate legal consultation, escrow management fee, and surrogate compensation package. This does not include the cost of the IVF cycle at your fertility physician’s office or the cost of an egg donor cycle.

What is the typical surrogacy compensation in Illinois?

The base compensation for gestational surrogates in Illinois ranges from $50,000 to $60,000. First-time surrogates earn base compensation of $50,000 plus an additional $350 per month for miscellaneous expenses. Repeat surrogates can earn a base of $55,000 and the additional $350 per month.

How do I choose the best surrogacy agency?

The best way to choose an Illinois surrogacy agency is to speak with agency staff and review client testimonials. The Surrogacy Source has an open-door policy, which means we welcome you to schedule a consultation with one of our account managers in order to gather additional information about gestational surrogacy in Illinois.
