Our Lawyers Are Leaders In Assisted Reproductive Technology Law

Trust Our Experienced Reproductive Law Attorneys To Safeguard Your Egg Donation Journey

Egg donation is permissible in the United States, yet the laws regulating this procedure can vary widely from state to state. Our assisted reproductive technology (ART) attorneys at the Law Offices of Lei, APC, in Irvine, California, can help you understand the complexities involved and make smart decisions that protect your best interests. Here are some important considerations when contemplating egg donation within the United States:

Compensation: While a majority of states sanction the compensation of egg donors for their involvement and dedication, the remuneration scales are often under the purview of state legislators. Some states impose caps on the monetary compensations egg donors can receive, whereas other states refrain from such limitations.

Anonymous vs. known donations: Egg donors possess the discretion to opt for anonymity, ensuring non-disclosure of their identity to the beneficiaries. Conversely, egg donors may choose to reveal their identity. The legal landscape with regard to anonymous and known egg donations varies state to state.

Legal rights and obligations: Generally, egg donors relinquish any legal claims and obligations toward the offspring conceived through donation, paving the way for the intended parents to assume full legal parentage. However, the legal landscape pertaining to parental claims and responsibilities in the context of egg donation also diverges across states.

Our egg donation lawyers are licensed to practice in California, New York and Oregon, and we regularly collaborate with local lawyers to serve clients in other states and internationally. For a free consultation, please call us at 949-245-7998 or contact us by email.
