In Arkansas, the law is highly favorable toward gestational surrogacy. Arkansas’ statute on surrogacy does not specifically cover gestational surrogacy but it is allowed in Arkansas and practiced on a regular basis. (Ark. Code Ann. § 9-10-201) Arkansas has no case law on gestational surrogacy.
Similarly, traditional (genetic) surrogacy in Arkansas is permitted and Ark. Code Ann. § 9-10-201 and 202 address traditional surrogacy; no case law in Arkansas prohibits traditional surrogacy.
