Surrogacy in Colombia

Colombian laws do not clearly define the provisions on surrogacy. The surrogate mother and her spouse, if any, are recorded as the child's parents. Biological parents can file a claim for acknowledgment of paternity for themselves and the Colombian Court will decide the issue of children's rights accordingly. In 2016, the country's right-wing political forces presented a bill that prohibits surrogacy in Colombia. Based on this, it is obvious that it would be advisable to choose countries for the surrogacy process that provide guarantees and regulate this procedure by law.

The residents of Colombia themselves, who need the services of surrogate mothers and want to have a guaranteed predictable positive result do the same. Aware of the things mentioned above, the political and economic situation which also leaves its imprint on the implementation of the process, the residents of Colombia do not want to risk such an important event in their lives.
