I often see keyboardists say on social media that „you don`t need a written agreement” and that „it`s not binding anyway.” Both are technically true, but also deceptively simple. You can certainly be pregnant by insemination of the house and do not have a written agreement before. And certainly, any written agreement is „not binding” on the family court. But there`s much more to it than that. To begin with, something written clarifies the relationships and expectations of the parties can prove whether it is a donor agreement or a co-parenting agreement. When registering the birth, Births Deaths and Marriages wants details about the donor and the agreement, so that the birth registration can correctly identify the parents and the donor. If you haven`t written anything, it can be left to the individual`s perceptions and change their mind whether they are donors or parents. Written agreements are very useful to ensure that everyone is on the same side. These techniques are very different from in vitro fertilization (IVF), in which a woman`s eggs are taken and fertilized in a laboratory environment outside the woman`s body.
After fertilization, one or more embryos (fertilized eggs) are introduced into the woman`s uterus. IVF can use a couple`s own eggs and sperm or donor eggs and sperm. Perhaps you would like to know more about the consequences of donor conception and also about my thoughts as an egg donor. For more information, listen to VARTA`s kate about donor conception, the donor relationship and what conceived donors want to know about their donors. My sister Claire and her wife Cass conceived their daughter with a known donor, and they told me about it on the podcast. If a lesbian couple enters a co-parenting agreement with a sperm donor and is married or in a life partnership, both must appear on the birth certificate, as they automatically share parental responsibility. If they are not married, they can register the sperm donor on the birth certificate. In this way, he would entrust parental responsibility to the sperm donor.
2. The donor has agreed to make his semen available to the recipient for artificial insemination. Artificial insemination is a cheaper and physically simpler process to achieve pregnancy. However, in the case of in vitro fertilization (IVF), both partners can be the biological parents of the child. IVF technology makes it possible to use one partner`s eggs to make embryos transferred to the other partner`s uterus („FiV Reziproke”). Same-sex couples who use any form of IVF should be sure to consult a lawyer at an early stage, given that medical clinic declarations of consent are generally not designed for such family training options and the use of consent statements for heterosexual couples can lead to legal complications. In particular, couples using reciprocal IVF must ensure that the legal rights of the egg-donating partner are not accidentally terminated by signing medical statements typically used for egg donors. Under the Family Law, a woman who has conceived a child by artificial insemination is considered the parent of the child, and if she has a partner at the time of conception and has agreed to treatment, the partner is also a parent of the child.
