Florida Statutes provide that the donor of any sperm, other than the commissioning couple or a father who has executed a preplanned adoption agreement, must relinquish all paternal rights. Known sperm donors may or may not have parental rights and obligations, depending on the legal steps taken up to the signing of the sperm donor contract. When a known sperm donor is used for conception, it is important that each party consults their own attorney to draft an agreement that defines the rights of all parties involved in relation to the future child.
It is also important that a licensed physician perform the insemination to best ensure enforceability of any sperm donation agreement.
