Ohio Family and Fertility Planning Attorneys
Legal Issues of Egg Donation, Sperm Donation, and Embryo Donation in Ohio
Are you considering the assistance of an egg donor, sperm donor, a donated embryo, or a surrogate to help bring a new child to your family? You will need to ensure that you are receiving experienced and comprehensive guidance throughout the process to make sure that your rights are protected, and that the end result is the realization of your dream - a new baby!
In Ohio, our laws presume that the person giving birth to a child is the mother and the spouse of the birth mother is the father. When this is not the case, the intended parents need to petition the Court to have the birth certificate reflect the appropriate parentage. If appropriate legal steps are not taken throughout the fertility or surrogacy process, there can be many difficult and expensive legal issues. At our law firm of Schulze, Howard & Cox we provide compassionate, experienced and qualified attorneys to answer your legal questions, and to handle the issues involved so that your dreams can be realized. We will help to protect your legal rights and your relationships through the development of a comprehensive family plan, which includes a contract as to the expectations of the parties to protect you, as well as the donor or surrogate.
What are the Legal Issues for an Ohio Sperm, Egg or Embryo Donor?
Are you considering the donation of sperm, or your eggs or an embryo? You need to fully understand the risks and potential complications that can arise out of this commitment. You also need to protect your rights and interests and ensure that you are appropriately compensated for your time and resulting expenses. It doesn't matter if the relationship between the donor or surrogate and the new parents consists of existing family members, friends or if the parties are relative strangers, the plan will need to be well documented, and the proper parentage of the resulting child established.
