• What do I do next?

    Posted by ___deleted-user on 17 September 2010 at 15:15

    I’m confused as to what to do if and when I find a match on here for a sperm donor/co-parent. What are the legalities and where do I go? Im new to this idea and would really appreciate advice.

    Thanks. Rx

    Hi Rebekah,

    I am only speaking from personal experience here, so bare that in mind and I am in Australia, so things may be somewhat different in the UK.

    First suggestion – be very sure what you are looking for. Email contacts and don’t be afraid to ask the tough questions. To me ensuring that a sperm donor was in good medical health and was willing to sign a legal sperm donor agreement were most important.

    Meet in person next and again, discuss EVERYTHING!

    In Australia, unless there is a legal agreement, the donor father can have an ongoing contact with the child and the mother may insist on child support payments.

    I feel lucky that I have found a sperm donor who is on exactly the same page as I am. We discussed everything prior to moving forward, we swapped medical information and we have a legal agreement in place.

    If you want to chat further – email via my profile Tori2

    hope this helps
