National Infertility Awareness Week: How Infertility Can Impact Your Family

Family Law

This week is National Infertility Awareness Week! The annual awareness campaign hopes to educate more people about infertility and the medical methods available to overcome it so that the millions of Americans affected by infertility can feel more confident about starting their families. You never know when infertility might disrupt your future plans, so it is important to understand it better and to never judge someone who uses alternative pregnancy and reproductive methods.

Each year, countless families across the world use assisted reproductive technology by using a surrogate, egg donor, and/or sperm donor. While many people research the science behind these assisted reproductive technologies, many overlook the important legal aspects that come with them. For this National Infertility Awareness Week, we encourage you to get a better understanding of the legal complications that surround assisted reproduction and fertility laws.

Our attorneys at Wisselman, Harounian & Associates, P.C. would be pleased to discuss how we can provide assistance in protecting you and your family’s rights with the following:

  • Sperm and egg donor agreements
  • Embryo donation contracts
  • Second-parent adoptions
  • Obtaining an order of adoption
  • Obtaining a judgment of parentage
  • Voluntary Acknowledgement of Paternity (VAP)
  • Disposition of frozen embryos

National Infertility Awareness Week is important and critical to those struggling with their fertility. However, fertility struggles happen every week of the year, so it is always a good time to learn more. For more information, please go to
