State Law Governing Gestational Surrogacy

There is no law in Kansas addressing gestational surrogacy. Because it is not prohibited, gestational surrogacy may be practiced.

  • Prior to the birth, send VR a certified copy of the Order and the Kansas Registration.

  • Judgment must include amendment language to remove GC as well as IPs’ marital status, date of birth, place of birth and address, maiden name of IM, social security as N/A and level of education of IPs.
  • Judgment will need to be registered per Vital Records. This can be done using a Kansas attorney (Karen Rosenberg) [email protected]; Fax: 816-756-1999.  Send Karen copy of certified Judgment of Parentage, and IP and GC addresses.

Birth Certificates: After the birth, VR will amend the birth record to add IM as mother. This takes about a week and after it is completed IPs can submit a birth certificate order form.
