Artificial Insemination

When a married woman, with the consent of her husband, conceives a child by artificial insemination from a donor other than her husband, the law generally recognizes the child as the husband’s legitimate child. Most states have presumption laws which presume a child born to a married woman is the child of her husband, and the designation of the husband as father in a case involving artificial insemination derives from those laws.
