Thinking of using NI with a known donor or if you are a sperm donor having sex with your recipient? Think again. A ruling in the British courts has made a donor who met a married woman recipient through the internet liable for child support plus all of her husband’s costs and three quarters of her legal costs.
The donor and recipient had an affair but the donor lied about this, saying that he and the woman had only started having sex after a child was conceived. This is apparently why costs were awarded against him.
Natalie Gamble writes about the case and the full judgement is given below. See also Natalie’s website http://www.nataliegambleassociates.co.uk for excellent advice regarding the use of known donors.
