When you decide to create a family through donor conception a lot of questions naturally arises. We have gathered some information about donor rights and other law matters that is important to consider during the process.
- It is a fundamental precondition for the donor’s donation of donor sperm that he cannot be considered or judged to be the legal father of the donor children resulting from his donation.
- None of our sperm donors can assume paternity under Danish law, and our donors have waived all rights to paternity to any donor child regardless of donor category.
- Neither donors in the categories “ID-release” and “ID-release, donor’s decision in 18 years” nor “No ID-release” donors have any legal responsibilities for children born from their sperm.
- Neither donors in the categories “ID-release” and “ID-release, donor’s decision in 18 years” nor “No ID-release” donors are allowed to receive any information about the identity of the recipient or the donor child at any time.
- Our donor definitions do not mean that the donors are unidentifiable at any time. As donor sperm is a DNA-material, we cannot guarantee that donors, recipients and donor children cannot be traced via DNA-registers and maybe otherwise in the future.
- If your treatment is to take place at a clinic, we advise you to always check beforehand that the clinic is allowed to treat you with the donor category you have chosen.
- In some countries, it is mandatory to disclose the identity of the donor (ID-release donors) to clinics and authorities before or in relation to import or treatment. SellmerDiers will disclose the identity of the donor to clinics/authorities to the extent that it is statutory in the country in question.
