Beyond the immense list of satisfied clients and our expertly trained and caring staff, we offer the Texas Advantage. The Texas Advantage involves lower costs, a central location, and several legal advantages for our clients.

Cost

There is a cost advantage to surrogacy in Texas. We offer lower rates in comparison to agencies in the east and west. Since we operate in Texas, we have the benefit of no state income tax. This allows us to immediately cut 10% of the competitor’s costs.

The cost of living is also 10-15% lower in Texas, as opposed to other states where surrogacy is legally favorable. We pay less for rent, personnel, utilities, and more. This results in lower overhead and expense costs, which trickles down to our clients.  

Since we are centrally located, we are close to both coasts and close to one of the country’s largest airports, saving us a lot of time and money on flights. This helps us remain quick and efficient in our process, saving you both time and money.

Location

Texas is located along the border of Mexico, in the center of the United States of America. This location allows us to work seamlessly with other states to further assist you. We will match our clients with surrogates and donors from other states where surrogacy is legally favorable such as Florida and California. We are also part of the central time zone which makes us available during the working day for most people on the east and west coast.

Legal

Surrogacy is permitted in the state of Texas. There are several legal advantages to this, including:

Married Couples

The advantage of being in Texas for married couples seeking surrogacy is that Texas has strong laws legalizing their Gestational Surrogacy. This means that donor and gestational arrangements are fully protected under Texas law.

Gestational Surrogacy Arrangements

In 2003, Texas enacted laws governing surrogacy called Gestational Arrangements. These arrangements work alongside Gestational Agreements and Egg Donor Agreements to properly protect all those who chose surrogacy. These guidelines outline what gestational arrangements should contain so that a Texas court can recognize and ratify what is written in the arrangement.
