How much does surrogacy cost from state to state?

Every surrogacy case is unique and involves factors that can impact the overall fees and price. The average cost of surrogacy can range from $190,000 to $230,000 depending on the individual arrangements. In states like California, where surrogates are in high demand, the cost may be slightly higher. Legal requirements and the costs of other services can also vary from state to state. However, the cost of surrogacy doesn't vary greatly between major metropolitan cities such as Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago and Houston.
