SPERM DONOR ORDERED TO PAY CHILD SUPPORT
A Kansas man has been ordered to pay child support for a child born out of sperm he donated to a lesbian couple.
William Marotta, 46, answered an ad on Craigslist asking for someone to donate sperm so that the couple could have a child.
The couple, Jennifer Schreiner and Angela Bauer came up with a written agreement that stated that Marotta would not be considered the father of the child nor liable for child support. As per that agreement Schreiner was the only parent listed on the child’s birth certificate.
The couple has since separated.
In October, the state of Kansas filed a petition seeking to have Marotta declared the father of the child and become financially responsible for the child after Schreiner encountered financial difficulties and applied for social welfare.
The man is being ordered to pay about $6,000 to cover medical expenses related to the child’s birth, according to the petition.
Marotta has stated that he will fight the petition.
This goes to show that Craigslist isn’t for anything.
Congratulations William Marotta and pretty much everyone else involved in this situation, you are today’s Eeeeediot Ting!!!!
