Legal Planning and Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART)
The number of children born through ART methods has tripled over the past 15 years and is expected to continue growing. Meanwhile, the law has struggled to keep up with these emerging technological developments.

In this episode, our Founder Attorney Shannon McNulty will be joined by Sarah Hechtman, a family law attorney and expert in fertility law. They will discuss parental rights in connection with surrogacy, egg and sperm donation, and frozen embryos and other reproductive material.

Join us for a fascinating conversation about this newly developing area of the law.

You’ll learn

• The state of New York law regarding children born through surrogacy and/or donor reproductive material
• How to protect your parental rights.
• Legal planning for frozen embryos, eggs, and sperm if you pass away or become incapacitated.
