If you are someone who wants to build a family through assisted reproductive technology (ART) using donated sperm, you may be deciding between using the sperm of a known donor (perhaps a friend or family member) or an anonymous donor through a sperm bank or clinic.
The Law Offices of Laurie B. Goldheim has extensive experience representing both sperm donors and recipients.
Our sperm donation agreements clearly set forth the understanding between the parties that the recipients will have full parental rights to any child conceived as a result of the sperm donation and that the sperm donor will have no parental obligations or financial responsibility for any child conceived as a result of his sperm donation.
What is the process for sperm donation?
What is the purpose of a sperm donation agreement?
In addition to the understanding of parental rights and responsibilities, the agreement will address many other important issues, including:
- Details regarding when and how the donation will be made
- Compensation, if any, to the sperm donor
- Expectations of the sperm donor
- Confidentiality of the parties
- Obligations/desires regarding future contact and/or medical information
- Rights of the child or children born from the sperm donation
Do all states have similar laws regarding sperm donation?
Must our agreement be signed before the sperm donation?
Can the sperm donor assert his parental rights at some point in the future?
Is it possible for either us or our child to meet the sperm donor at some point in the future?
