Wyoming Surrogacy Law

Summary: It is unclear how Wyoming law would treat a surrogacy agreement that includes lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender (LGBT) individuals because there are no statutory provisions or published cases dealing with the issue of surrogacy.

However, there is no explicit prohibition in Wyoming on LGBT couples jointly adopting a child, nor is there an explicit prohibition on LGBT individuals from adopting a child of their same-sex partner.
