artificial insemination

Family law. A process for achieving conception, whereby semen is inserted into a woman’s vagina by some means other than intercourse.

• If the woman is married when the artificial insemination and the birth occur, and her husband has consented to the insemination, and the insemination is performed by a licensed physician, the husband is considered the father of the child. If the woman is unmarried at the time of the insemination, several factors, varying from jurisdiction to jurisdiction, determine whether the donor is considered the father of the child. Cf. IN VITRO FERTILIZATION ; GAMETE INTRAFALLOPIAN TRANSFER; ZYGOTE INTRAFALLOPIAN TRANSFER.
