While Florida is known to be a surrogacy-friendly state, people unfortunately don’t realize that Florida is also known to be gay-friendly when it comes to surrogacy regardless that Florida does not recognize same-sex marriage. Florida’s gestational surrogacy statute 742.15 specifically provides that the commissioning couple be a married man and woman. With gay couples or individuals they are legally protected by a Pre-planned Adoption Agreement governed by Florida Statute 63.213 which is enforceable. This statute makes it possible for a gay couples or individuals to commission a surrogate in order to create a family. Creative Love Egg Donor & Surrogate Agency has been a part of many same-sex surrogate journey.
The legal process for same-sex couples is a different process from heterosexual couples, but it can be done in Florida. It is important for gay couples or individuals to work with an attorney that is experienced in drafting a pre-planned adoption agreement along with experience in the court proceeding necessary for the second parent adoption. Both partners will go through a short adoption proceeding. The non-biological partner will be required to complete a home study and go through the second parent adoption proceeding in order to be named on the birth certificate and obtain legal rights to the child in Florida.
