Sperm donor fail: Kansas wants child support from man after lesbians – TomoNews – 844-292-1318 Kansas legal aid

TOPEKA, KANSAS —Should a sperm donor be forced to pay “child support”? That’s the pointy end of the law facing a Kansas man who in 2009, helped a lesbian couple who wanted to be parents.

William Marotta responded to the couple’s Craigslist ad, charged nothing and even delivered the specimen to their home. All three parties signed a paper agreeing to their terms and specifying that Marotta had given up all parental rights.

The state of Kansas, however, has spent years hounding Marotta for child support, going so far as ordering a paternity test. Why are they doing this? Sperm donation is legal in Kansas, but the couple inseminated at home — which is not — so the state says Marotta’s the real baby daddy, and he’s gotta pay up.

The couple, Angela Bauer and Jennifer Schreiner, broke up after eight years together but agreed to continue co-parenting the little girl as well as other children they are reportedly responsible for.

The sperm donor’s legal saga only began after the little girl’s mom got sick and applied for benefits. The state required the biological father’s name, and then began pursuing him.

None of the individuals involved in the case are asking anyone for anything. The former couple is not seeking financial aid, the sperm donor is not seeking parental rights.

The state of Kansas seems to be wasting money and resources because a couple “self inseminated at home”. William Marotta says he didn’t know they were going to “DIY” his donation, but in any case, why should he be held responsible?
Marotta says he’s fighting this out of principle, and will take his appeals as far as they can go. A GoFundMe page has been set up to pay Marotta’s mounting legal bills.

  1. Nobody is asking anyone for anything? Really? Didn't he just said that one of these lesbians applied for benefits?

  2. This is stupid. First of all, he should not have to pay. But the thing is, This is what you get for trying to help a couple like that. Women will state that their eggs are precious. Well I would, "So is my sperm!!" I would've NEVER helped them. HE's definitely at fault and is "Paying" for "IT"… (Literally)!!

  3. Technically the woman who left should be pursued. She was the other legal guardian to the child. That man has no claim to that child. She played the role of the father or second mother therefore she needs to see how it is in a guys shoes and pay her own child support the state of Kansas need to wise up and leave him alone and find her because her responsibilities to the child are not over.

  5. Sodomites….this is America's future. If they woulda been straight and married a man, this would not have happened.

  6. when single families file for government assistance. The states automatically go after any legal garden. If you.are elderly on social security the government goes after any resources you have. If you are a child the government goes after all legally liable biological parents. At home sperm donors don't have the same protection.

  7. Unless the contract was unfair or signed under duress, the government needs to step off. The only reason for this law is so the government can take the money that they gave out to feed the child from the pocket of the father. Heaven forbid the government actually lends a helping hand to a starving child!

  8. this is what happens when you help homosexual become parents, the child is born disadvantaged from the start, and when the relationship fails, the donor gets screwed, and the child suffers even more.

  9. Should've did his due diligence. But, Kansas is just a fuck up of a state. They reelected a Governor who literally stole from the poor to give to the rich, lol….

  10. This needs to be ILLEGAL, donating sperm needs to be illegal, because people who can't have kids should not have kids, It pollutes the human gene pool.

  11. its os scary to be man what ever u do with your penis u eventualy end up with child support …
