In April 2020 Gov. Cuomo signed legislation overturning the ban on surrogacy. The bill means that New York will allow residents to enter into paid surrogacy contracts as of Feb. 15, 2021. This law will give strong protections to surrogates by requiring that a surrogate must be at least 21. The intended parents will be required to pay for legal counsel for their surrogate plus for the surrogate health and life insurance during the pregnancy and for a year after their surrogate gives birth.
