Liberal Surrogacy and Donation Law in Georgia
Georgia’s liberal legislation grants parenthood to couples, not surrogate mothers. In other words, surrogate mothers are not entitled to claim parenthood and children born of them, immediately upon birth, receive birth certificates with the names of their future parents indicated.
