William Marotta, Kansas Sperm Donor To Lesbian Couple, Fighting Child Support Payments

William Marotta

A Kansas man who donated sperm to a lesbian couple after answering an online ad is fighting the state’s efforts to suddenly force him to pay child support for the now 3-year-old girl, arguing that he and the women signed an agreement waiving all of his parental rights. The couple in question broke up and the woman who has custody filed her paperwork with the state for assistance. The state feels that they should be reimbursed by the father for child support since he is not considered a sperm donor because the couple did not go through the formal route of a doctor. The state will not recognize the agreement between the three involved and the case will be heard on Tuesday. As require by state law (10 other states have similar requirements), since William Marcotta didn’t work through a doctor he owes the state $6,000 for the child support the state gave the mother through public assistance.

In this situation, I think this is crappy because of a loophole this poor guy is getting screwed and the biological mother agrees. I hope the state doesn’t win this case because this poor guy who was trying to help out this couple is having to foot the bill because the state doesn’t want to. The couple should of read the law before deciding to have a child because this guy is paying for it. I do understand though that same sex couples do get a raw deal when it comes to adopting or having kids so my sympathies. Maybe this country should reexamine it’s policies.
