Hi - my name is ***** ***** I'll be glad to assist.
Oregon Statute § 109.243 says:
"The relationship, rights and obligation between a child born as a result of artificial insemination and the mothers husband shall be the same to all legal intents and purposes as if the child had been naturally and legitimately conceived by the mother and the mothers husband if the husband consented to the performance of artificial insemination."
Thus, it seems that the answer to this turns on whether or not the husband consents to the artificial insemination.......
The bot***** *****ne is that if your husband DOES NOT consent to the artificial insemination, then he's not presumed as the father.
But, if he DOES consent to the artificial insemination, then he would be the father just as if the child had been naturally conceived between the two of you.
That's right. If he doesn't consent to the artificial insemination prior to it occurring, he can refuse responsibility for the child and deny that he is he father.
