Are my legal rights different when donating sperm to single gay or heterosexual women compared to lesbian couples?
If you are a genuine sperm donor – whether you are gay, straight, single or married there are thousands of women desperately needing your help to achieve their dream of becoming pregnant.
If you conceive via home insemination your sperm donor will be the child’s legal father.
If you conceive through a licensed fertility clinic with a known sperm donor there is a possibility that the donor will be considered as the legal father however this is an emerging area and the decisions will be based on individual circumstance. If the father is not named on the birth certificate he will have no parental or financial responsibility to the child.
