surrogacy argentinaSurrogacy in Argentina, Buenos Aires City

We assist at conferences and webinars organized by The Academy of Adoption and Assisted Reproduction Attorneys (AAAA), in the United States,  the LGBT Bar Family Law Institute  ART Commission in the American Bar Association, and the International Academy of Family Lawyers. United States is far away the country that has more experience in surrogacy.  We are aware of the changes and decisions in the world, practically as soon as they happen.
In Argentina there is no law that specifically regulates surrogacy, neither is there a law that prohibits it. It is up to the judges in each individual case to decide on surrogacy cases that takes place in Argentina, as well as for the child's best interest. First surrogacy court decision in Argentina took place in a leading case in 2013.  We are proud to have represented our clients in this case.
Since  October 2017,  In Buenos Aires city, Civil Register issues birth certificate including the intended parents, following rules settled in a leading case. The baby has birth certificate and passport in less 20 days +/-. No court order is required at all.  The surrogate woman will not appear in the birth certificate.  Only the parents are in the birth certificate.  The child has the Argentine Nationality since Argentina has the "ius solis".   
Part of the process can be carried out in Argentina and part in another country. You can bring your genetic material from other countries in tanks with nitrogen. Surrogates maybe from Argentina and other countries, process, embryo transfer maybe done in any country.

WARNING SURROGACY ARGENTINAWe also want to warn you to be very careful with offers from local and foreign agencies for surrogacy in Argentina. You could be victims of scams, and you may  be penalized under Argentine laws.  Local agencies are forbidden since surrogacy is altruist and agency must have a commercial target.  IVF clinics shoudl not offer surrogates.   Attorneys should not offer surrogates.  Any doubt, contact us. Any document you sign may be null and it could be a felony concerning the surrogate.

Remember that if agency is in US and or you send money to a US Bank, you can contact directly FBI offices if you are victim of any scam. It may be a federal crime.


Families who need a visa for their children born in Argentina trough surrogacy  must do a legal consultation with your attorney specialized in Surrogacy / Migration to assist you with documents.  I had several consultations from Australia, New Zealand. Australia will not allow to enter your son under tourist visa, you need a special visa or an Australian passport. Pls check  ​ and ask your local authorities, you maybe have to stay for a long time here before coming home.  In my experience, talking with my fellows in Australia, Australia officers may  prepare  interviews with different persons participating in the surrogacy process and it is important you tell the truth.    I can referral fellows in your country in required.

Be aware to nice colors in web pages, trust in the persons, in references, in contact and in families already had children in the same IVF/ICSI Clinic and with the persons who are offering you services.
egg donation argentinaFirst leading case on Surrogacy in Argentina. June 2013. Achieved through our law firm: The judge Maria del Carmen Bacigualupo, in charge of the National Civil Court N° 86  ordered the registration of a baby born in Buenos Aires in the Civil Registry under the name of the intended parents. It was a decision without precedents in our country. Judge stated that there are no laws to allow or prohibit surrogacy and even if it was known the draft of the Civil Code regulated surrogacy, it could or could not turn into law, but without a doubt it operated as a guideline for the case. The judge stated that more relevant element is in the determination of filiation of those children born under ART is the consent of the persons who participated in the process.

Our firm takes care about surrogacy, embryo donation, egg and sperm donation in Argentina,  as well as outside Argentina with the assistance of our colleagues abroad. Do not  hesitate to contact us.
