I often get asked why assisted reproductive technology should be relevant from a legal or regulatory perspective, given that it is a medical procedure.
Actually, the application of in vitro fertilisation techniques (homologous artificial insemination, heterologous artificial insemination, etc.) has produced new types of family relations, which often raise doubts and uncertainties.
It is therefore crucial to be familiar with the law on artificial insemination, in order to understand the effects and legal consequences of such choice.
I provide legal advice on the Italian law on artificial insemination (Law 40/2004), with special focus also on the comparative law aspects of the matter, regarding the recognition of family status acquired abroad.
My legal advice services also cover the protection of family situations involving homosexual parents(so-called rainbow families) and single parents.
