I had a surrogate and she changed her mind. The hospital let her fill out the birth certificate paperwork. We both are listed as mother but he has my lastname and i want my name removed from his birth certificate
I am so sorry that you are going through this. It is unclear if this was a genetic surrogate (traditional surrogacy) or gestational carrier. You should contact the attorney who assisted you with contracts and any court proceeding to establish your parentage and list you on the birth records.
