Summary of Kansas Surrogacy Law
The owner of the embryos transferred to the Carrier may seek to establish parentage. The Carrier may rebut the presumption of parentage because she is not the owner of the gametes used to form the Child. Parentage may be established prior to the birth of the child. Kansas courts have not adjudicated a surrogacy agreement dispute, but when deciding other third-party parentage disputes the courts have heavily relied upon the agreement between the parties and upheld the terms of the agreement.
