EMBRYO DISPOSITION AGREEMENTS

Intended Parents with cryopreserved embryos may elect to draft an embryo disposition agreement addressing what will happen to their embryos in the event of their death or divorce.

For married couples, embryo disposition agreements can address which party will retain custody and control of the cryopreserved embryos upon the event of their divorce.

Embryo dispositional agreements can also address what will happen to their embryos in the event of their death, including directing the embryos be donated to another couples, donated to medical or scientific research, or be discarded.

The New York Child Parent Security Act provides clarity surrounding embryo disposition agreements and their effect.

 

If you are considering an embryo disposition agreement, please reach out for a free consultation.
