Artificial Conception

Modern medical science has made it possible for prospective parents who are unable to conceive a child naturally to have children by artificial means. But the practice of artificial conception also raises a number of legal and ethical questions, such as the storage and destruction of unused embryos. This sub-section of FindLaw's Family Law Center includes basic information about artificial conception, such as artificial insemination and in vitro fertilization, as well as a guide to which questions to ask a fertility service when considering the procedure and a sample intake form to help you prepare for a meeting with an attorney.
