Surrogacy Laws in Wyoming
- Is Wyoming a surrogate friendly state: Maybe, due to lack of surrogacy matters and surrogacy parentage based applications in the state of Wyoming, there is a lack of precedent, and results relating to surrogacy matters will be based on judicial review on a case-by-case basis.
- Can Parent(s) obtain a birth order without an adoption: Most likely yes, but only a post-birth order can be issued.
- Can birth order be obtained without a genetic connection to Child: Most likely yes, but only a post-birth order can be issued.
Summary of Wyoming Surrogacy Law
Currently, Wyoming’s Parentage Act (WY Stat § 14-2-403(d)) does not authorize or prohibit surrogacy, and therefore surrogacy in the state of Wyoming is considered legal. However, due to the lack of surrogacy matters in the state of Wyoming, the application of surrogacy law is uncertain, and strong precedent is yet to be established.
