On May 30, 2018, a surrogacy bill was signed into law by our now current governor, Phil Murphy. Gestational surrogacy has never been illegal in New Jersey but the statute will now afford a greater protection for the parties involved in a surrogacy arrangement when the Gestational Carrier resides in New Jersey. As an Agency, we have always worked with New Jersey candidates when other Agencies or attorneys would not accept their applications. Our legal referral team drafted Legal Agreements that were extremely inclusive and fair to both the IP family and the Gestational Carrier family. But now there is a clear protection for everyone. This is a very exciting time for New Jersey and Surrogacy!
