NSW couples could soon be able to advertise for surrogates under law changes being considered by the state’s attorney general.
Gabrielle Upton is reviewing changes to current laws that would allow reform around advertising for “altruistic surrogacy arrangements”.
Commercial surrogacy is illegal under existing laws, and commissioning parents can’t advertise for a surrogate.
Other changes under consideration might also speed up application time for legal parentage orders. People are currently only able to apply for legal parentage 30 days after the child is born.
