Assume Alice and Bob created together a frozen embryo, when Alice and Bob were partners and living together (i.e., Bob was not a sperm donor). Sometime later, Alice and Bob separated. In the event Alice wants to use the frozen embryo to have a child, but Bob doesn't want to have a child from this embryo, will Bob be still responsible for child support?
Does this depend on the contract that was signed when conceiving the frozen embryo? If so:
- Can the contract stipulate that Alice cannot have the child without Bob's consent?
- Can the contract stipulate that Bob will no be responsible for child support in the event that Alice have the child without Bob's consent?
By "Can the contract stipulate", I mean that the contract's clauses will be uphold by the court.
Alice and Bob created together the frozen embryo in California, and still live in California.
