Gestational Surrogacy is permitted by Nev. Rev. Stat. NRS 126.500 – 126.810. Courts in Nevada will issue a Pre-Birth Order to married and unmarried couples, same-sex couples, and individuals regardless of the genetic relationship to the child. Nevada does regulate Gestational Carrier Agreements and has specific requirements for the Intended Parents and Surrogates.
Generally during the second trimester of pregnancy, paperwork for the parentage order from the court will be prepared by the Intended Parent(s)’ attorney. This parentage order will secure Intended Parent(s)’ legal rights and direct only the Intended Parent(s)’ name be placed on the baby’s birth certificate.
