Surrogacy Court

Surrogacy Court: A Surrogacy Court handles legal matters that in other states would customarily be handled by a Probate Court, or in some cases also a Family Court. It handles matters where one individual legally stands in the place of another individual or individuals to accomplish a specific legal purpose for a specific period of time. Although it is understandably confusing for some people, a Surrogacy Court does not have anything directly to do with the type of "surrogacy" arrangements where fertile women act as the carriers of a pregnancy for otherwise infertile couples, where thy become pregnant either by artificial insemination or by an embryo transplant, or other similar procedure. A Surrogacy Court is not where someone can go to request or make arrangements for this kind of a surrogate mother for a child.
