Surrogacy contracts are considered valid and enforceable when they are created by attorneys with experience in reproductive law who establish the rights, responsibilities, compensation, contact expectations, and birth plans between IPs and gestational surrogates.

Yes, gestational surrogacy is legal in Oregon and the surrogacy contract (legal agreement between IPs and surrogates) is valid and enforceable when signed with an attorney.
Intended parents (IPs) can be just about anyone, including single aspiring parents, couples dealing with infertility, LGBTQ+ families, and anyone who cannot carry a pregnancy to term safely.
