Do lesbian couples need a sperm donor contract?

By Andrea Rodrigo.

Absolutely yes, especially in the case of same-sex couples and single women who decide to collaborate with a male friend or brother (i.e. known sperm donor). Sperm donor agreements are intended for those who do not use a sperm bank as intermediary.

The purpose of this type of contract is to make sure the donor is not the legal parent despite being the biological father of the child.
