17 Feb 2021 New York Child Parent Security Act Offers Guidelines for Assisted Reproduction
The new Child Parent Security Act (CPSA) took effect on Monday, February 15, 2021, legalizing compensated surrogacy in the state of New York, with robust protections for surrogates and intended parents.
As I wrote recently for surrogacy information clearinghouse GoStork.com, “The CPSA is comprehensive new parentage legislation for New York, designed to meet 30 years of advances in medical science and family building through assisted reproduction.”
In addition to creating a “surrogate’s bill of rights,” the new law establishes criteria for intended parents and surrogates and provides a simple path for parents to establish parentage, allowing them to “have a secure legal relationship with their child from the moment of birth.”
