A Video FAQ with Mary E. Vandenack.
The technical term is assisted reproduction, at least from a legal perspective, and a lawyer can help in a variety of ways. One thing that is really important is that each state’s laws vary on different aspects of the assisted reproduction process. You need to understand the state law and the state you are working in. Those laws affect such things as who the parents are. You also need to consider updating your wills and trusts to identify who your heirs are. So you might have a grandparent and one of their grandchildren is the child of assisted reproduction and you need to make decisions about including or excluding, exactly what you mean, when you refer to children and grandchildren in your trust and will documents.
