Children born by a surrogate mother abroad

  • Print

The woman who gave birth to the child will be considered the child's mother.

Even if the birth certificate from the country in which the child was born states that the Norwegian woman is the child's mother, this will not be accepted as a valid maternity in Norway if the woman did not give birth to the child.

According to Norwegian law, legal maternity can only be transferred through adoption.
