SECTION 581-307
Effect of death of intended parent
Family Court Act (FCT) CHAPTER 686, ARTICLE 5-C, PART 3
§ 581-307. Effect of death of intended parent. If an individual who
consented in a record to be a parent by assisted reproduction dies
before the transfer of eggs, sperm, or embryos, the deceased individual
is not a parent of the resulting child unless the deceased individual
consented in a signed record that if assisted reproduction were to occur
after death, the deceased individual would be a parent of the child,
provided that the record complies with the estates, powers and trusts
law. Any rights of the child born after the death of an intended parent
may be enforced by a government agency authorized by law, including but
not limited to a department of social services.
