Fertility and Divorce – The Egg and the Sperm

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on Fertility and Divorce – The Egg and the Sperm

Shared cusstody on The Smart DivorceOur guest, Nicolle Kopping-Pavars explores the very sensitive topic of fertility and divorce on The Smart Divorce with Deborah Moskovitch and Steve Peck.  This issues are not as complicated as one might think, as embryos have no rights.  Eggs and sperm are defined as property.  Nicolle is the founder of NKP-Law, a Family Law practice dedicated to helping families in transition. With a focus on Collaborative Family Law, Family Mediation and Third Party Reproduction (Surrogacy, Egg Donation and Sperm Donation), NKP Law operates with respect, compassion, integrity and education as our core foundation. We encourage personal growth and adopt a more holistic approach to the practice of family law.

  • Who retains ownership of the embryo, egg or sperm?
  • Why has fertility become an issue in family law and separation
  • Is there a difference in issues when dealing with a separation based on infertility
  • What is the impact of the “emotional” divorce that lawyers should be cognizant of when dealing with fertility?
  • Fertility and family law moving forward: when there are children of donor off spring or embryo donation.
