Surrogacy Agreements

Be sure you have a good Mexican lawyer familiar with law in the State of Tabasco.

The surrogacy agreement is very important and must be notarized and apostilled. There can be no formal agreement with the agency around the surrogate making money other than expenses being re-imbursed.

  • Do NOT put payment terms in ANY contract with the surrogate. If you pay the surrogate beyond expenses it can be construed as child trafficking.
  • Do put that you will cover expenses for whatever your negotiated term.
  • Do set a limit on reimbursements

You can use a 3rd party to do the payments but they have to retain all receipts.
