But what happens if a woman, who was artificially inseminated by the sperm of an anonymous sperm donation, determines the identity of the father and then petitions the court for child support from the father? The answer is that in New York, we do not yet have a conclusive answer. In, P.D. v. S.K., one of the very few cases on the topic of support from sperm donors, the Nassau County Family Court required a sperm-donor father to pay child support despite “numerous promises that he would have no rights or benefits in raising the child, nor any financial responsibilities.” It was especially important in this case, that father and mother, who had known each other prior to the donation, had agreed to the father’s sperm donation and that the father was active in the child’s life.
