Mexico is one of the most convenient locations for pursuing an international surrogacy journey because its close proximity to the United States and other surrounding countries keep travel costs low and travel time minimal. Many IPs are already familiar with Mexico in some respect making the journey more comfortable and more enjoyable. All our surrogacy journeys take place in the historic capital of Mexico ~ Mexico City ~ were there are modern hotels, delicious restaurants, diverse neighborhoods and cultural events. A favorable exchange rate and a sizable bilingual population are two additional benefits that contribute to the positive, stimulating, enjoyable experience that make Mexico an ideal location for an international surrogacy journey.
After the Tabasco Civil Code section pertaining to surrogacy was revised at the beginning of 2016 there was a widespread misconception that surrogacy in Mexico was banned for foreign IPs as well as for single and gay IPs. This information is simply not accurate. Presently, surrogacy in Mexico is only legislated in one Mexican state ~ the state of Tabasco revised their Civil Code in January 2016 placing drastic restrictions on the availability of surrogacy, effectively banning all foreign, single and gay IPs but Tabasco laws have no impact on surrogacy performed elsewhere in Mexico. Alturistic surrogacy in Mexico is being performed regularly in Mexico City where surrogacy is neither regulated nor prohibited by any laws whatsoever creating what we refer to as a "legally neutral" environment with regard to surrogacy in Mexico. In fact, the courts have consistently upheld and enforced properly prepared, fully executed, valid surrogacy contracts. In addition, the courts regularly enter favorable rulings regarding termination of surrogate's parental rights and fully support granting full parental rights to the biologically related party. We have implemented an organized, simple, speedy procedure we follow to successfully navigate the exit process in the present legal environment and we've experienced incredible results thus far! Surrogacy in Mexico is open to single IPs, foreign IPs, same sex couples and heterosexual couples. Gay or straight, single or married, local or foreign ~ all are invited and encouraged to pursue a surrogacy journey in Mexico with IPC!
