Connecticut Gay Surrogacy Laws

Surrogacy law in Connecticut is advantageous. The statutes are silent with regard to surrogacy agreements, but various cases have looked favorably on such agreements, including same-sex couples.

It is legal in Connecticut for gay male couples and lesbian couples to jointly adopt, as well as for individuals to adopt the children of their same-sex partner.

Now that same-sex couples have the right to marry in Connecticut, the courts look favorably upon a gay surrogacy agreement involving individuals of the LGBT community.
