The Act permits legal custodians of a human embryo to transfer their rights in the embryo to an intended parent before the transfer of that embryo. To effectuate the transfer of rights in the embryo and any resulting child, the Act requires that the legal custodians and the intended parent enter into a written contract before the embryo is transferred. When such a written contract is in place, the Act provides that a child resulting from the embryo transfer will be presumed to be the child of the intended parent and that parent may petition for an expedited order of adoption or parentage either before or after the child’s birth.
