WHAT DOES THE LAW SAY?

Clinics in the UK are regulated by the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority (HFEA), which ensures transparency about everyone’s legal position.

Sperm donors have neither paternal nor legal obligations to any children that are the result of their donations. The same applies to the donor children, who have no legal claims to the donor.

According to the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority:

“… providing you donate through a licensed UK fertility clinic, you will have no legal rights or responsibilities to children conceived from your donation […] A sperm donor, therefore, has no rights to children born with the help of his sperm, and neither the child nor its mother have any claims towards the donor.”

You can read more about the HFEA’s rules for sperm donors here.
