How are the parents of a child born by assisted reproductive technology determined?

As stated previously, the birth of a child will give rise to a parent and child relationship.

Based on the bloodline, a typical baby is born and has the blood type of his/her parents. However, in cases where techniques of assisted childbirth are utilized, the child may be born without the genetic characteristics of the woman who was pregnant and without the genetic characteristics of the husband of the pregnant woman.  This creates an issue of determining who the child’s parents are. The couple who are pregnant or the person who carries the same genes as the child.

The 2014 Law on Marriage and Family states that “A child born in cases of altruistic gestational surrogacy is the common child of the husband and wife who have requested the gestational surrogacy from the time this baby is born.”
