There are a variety of ways to build a family through donation or co-parenting, including:

  • Use of identifiable arms-length donor eggs, sperms or embryos.
  • Use of non-identifiable donor eggs, sperm or embryos.
  • Use of eggs or sperm from a known donor.
  • Inter-family donation.
  • A co-parenting arrangement.

These family building arrangements create complex legal, practical, financial and emotional issues which require careful management from the outset.

Our specialist legal services help you identify, understand and navigate the legal issues, risks and outcomes in the short, medium and longer term.  We provide tailored legal advice and solutions that align with your situation and wishes.
