If you want to become a surrogate mother, Florida is one of the best states to do it. The process isn’t legal everywhere, but Florida law allows both traditional and gestational surrogacy.

In addition to the physical process itself, surrogacy involves a lot of legal work – contracts that, in order to be worth anything, must be enforceable. They aren’t in every state, which means that even if the surrogacy procedure is legal, the whole process could be cancelled if one of the parties changed their mind or there was a disagreement.
However, in Florida surrogate mothers – alongside the intended parents – are protected by the full force of the law; Florida legislation supports these contracts, and the state’s courts have consistently upheld them.
