A Legal Roadmap for Intended Parents Interested in Egg Donation

Intended Parents considering using an Egg Donor should first consult with an experienced Third-Party Reproductive Attorney. Advice from an attorney is important for protecting the rights of the Intended Parents and their future children.

These Medical consent forms will not legally establish parental rights due to the fact that they do not meet the requirements of California law. These medical consent forms only address issues directly related to medical treatment procedures, benefits, risks and alternatives.

Legal Ramifications of Different Egg Donation Options

There are many different types of Egg Donation arrangements available including known donor matches, anonymous donor arrangements (in which the clinic facilitates the match), anonymous donors matched through an independent agency, shared cycles in which one donor’s eggs are divided among several recipients, double donor cycles with resulting embryos split among several recipients, frozen egg bank arrangements, and foreign egg donation cycles, to name just a few. Different options will have different legal ramifications with regard to future confidentiality and contact, as well as the use of any remaining embryos.
