We have a legal network that you can utilize to find the best support and advocacy possible for you on your journey. On our Known Vs Unknown Donor page, you can learn more about the legal considerations of working with sperm and egg donors. You’ll need to weigh multiple factors when considering whether to work with a known or unknown donor, and those pages will give you more information on those factors.
In some cases, non-gestational parents may have to adopt their own children because they don’t share the kind of biological connection that the law considers to be “parentage.” Even when utilizing reciprocal IVF (R-IVF), usually one partner is still considered the legal “parent” while the other is not, despite BOTH parents having contributed biologically to the pregnancy. We understand how frustrating and, at times, confusing this landscape can be.
