(c) at least one of the mandated parents or, if the mandated parent is a single person, that person at the time of the conclusion of the contract established in the Republic; 2.) The court must terminate the confirmation of the agreement within the meaning of Section 295 after informing the parties to the agreement and informing the surrogate mother that the surrogate mother has voluntarily terminated the contract and understands the effects of the termination, and the court may make any other appropriate decision, if it is in the best interests of the child. Law 3305/2005 („the application of medically assisted reproduction“) surrogacy in Greece is perfectly legal and is only one of a handful of countries in the world to grant legal protection to parents who intend to do so. Parents considering must complete certain qualifications and will appear before a family judge before travelling. As long as they meet the requirements, the court`s case is in procedural law and their application is accepted. Currently, intentional parents must be in a heterosexual partnership or be a single woman. Women must be able to prove that there is a medical indication that they cannot wear and that they are no more than 50 years old at the time of the contract. As in all legal systems, surrogate mothers must undergo medical and psychological tests to prove to the court that they are in medical and mental form. What is unique about Greece is that it is the only country in Europe and one of the only countries in the world where the substitute has no right to the child. Intentional parents are mentioned by Derem to legal parents, and the surrogate is not mentioned anywhere on hospital or birth certificates. Intentional parents are listed as parents. The same is true when an egg or sperm donor is used by one of the partners. An additional benefit for Europeans is that under the Schengen Agreement, they can return home freely as soon as the baby is born and deal with citizenship issues at that time, instead of applying to their embassy in Greece.
The old regime (according to Article 8 of Law 3089/2002), one of the conditions for obtaining judicial authorization for surrogacy was also the fact that the surrogate mother and the mandated parents had to be Greek citizens or permanent residents. However, the law has recently changed (in July 2014) and the new provisions of L. 4272/2014 now provide that surrogate mothers or surrogate mothers with permanent or temporary residence in Greece are now allowed. With this new law, Greece becomes the only EU country to have a comprehensive framework for regulating, facilitating and implementing surrogacy, as stated in the explanatory statement of Article 17 of L. 4272/2014: „The possibility now extends to applicants or surrogate mothers permanently residing outside Greece.“ Embryo research is also permitted, with the donation of game and embryos allowed at the commercial level. Single women can be treated by known or anonymous donor fertilization. Gestational is an option for officially married couples (men and women) if they can prove that they cannot carry a baby themselves for medical reasons and that at least one parent must have a genetic link with the newborn.   Surrogacy in Ukraine is not legally regulated or commercial, it is rather altruistic, because the so-called „payment“ is not paid to the surrogate mother, it is classified as compensation and is not required to pay taxes.
