Lesbians and Donor Insemination
“For the most part, if a woman purchases anonymous donor sperm from a sperm bank, the donor will not have any legal rights to the child. This is the safest way for a single woman or a lesbian couple to assure that no one other than them will have parental rights.” So says Deborah H. Wald, a San Francisco Bay Area attorney specializing in family formation law, as she explains the legal parameters of lesbians having babies.
One thought on “Lesbians and Donor Insemination”
even a known donor insemination contract will not hold up in court. it is only used to state the intentions at the time of the donation.
unless you are 100% sure that this won’t be an issue, i would encourage everyone to use a bank.
using a known donor is just as expensive as a bank, if you handle the known donor relationship properly. and by properly, i mean hiring an attorney for both yourself and the donor and drafting a contract.
