With sperm or egg donation, the intended parent(s) may connect with a prospective donor through an agency, their fertility clinic or on their own. Depending on how they connect with their donor, the intended parent(s) and their donor may need to enter into a “donation agreement” where they directly contract with each other. At other times, they may only need to execute a detailed consent document with their fertility clinic.
Because the legal requirements vary by situation, whether you’re an intended parent or a prospective egg or sperm donor, it’s important that you consult with an experienced ART attorney to make sure you understand the risks and liabilities associated with a gamete donation.
Many times in cases where the intended parents and gamete donor don’t know each other, the necessary legalities are taken care of at the time of donation at the fertility clinic where it’s performed. However, not all medical clinics’ egg donor contracts and sperm donor agreements address the same issues, which is why we still recommend a donor or intended parent work with a lawyer to ensure all the necessary legalities are covered. If you’re planning to work with an intended parent or gamete donor that you know, it will be best to work directly with an ART attorney from the very beginning of the process, too.
