Kansas Surrogacy Laws

Kansas Surrogacy Laws

There is no Kansas case law or any Kansas statute that prohibits would-be parents from practicing either gestational surrogacy or traditional surrogacy in Kansas. As a result, both types of surrogacy are permitted and are practiced throughout Kansas cities such as Wichita, Overland Park, and Kansas City.

Laws Concerning Parentage Orders in Kansas

Kansas allows for its courts to grant pre-birth parentage orders to biological parents of a child conceived through means of assisted reproduction. Under Kansas statute, any child born as a result of heterologous artificial insemination shall be considered at law, in all respects, to be the same as a naturally conceived child of the husband and wife consenting to the use of artificial insemination (K.S.A. 23-2302.).

Egg and Sperm Donor Law in Kansas

Under Kansas statute, any child conceived as a result of heterologous artificial insemination, where sperm from a man other than the woman’s partner is used for conception, shall be considered at law in all respects the same as a naturally conceived child of the husband and wife  (K.S.A. 23-2302.). There is no case law or state statute that governs the rights, interests, and obligations of Kansas egg and embryo donors.

Kansas Stepparent and Second-Parent Adoption Law

Kansas statute allows for a stepparent in Kansas to adopt their spouse’s child as long as both of the biological parents provide consent to the adoption (K.S.A. 59-2129.). Only one biological parent may be required to give consent to the adoption if consent is found unnecessary under K.S.A. 59-2136.
