With the technological advancements made in reproduction, it is not uncommon for a couple to seek in-vitro fertilization (“IVF”) for when they are ready to have children. This involves freezing an embryo (an egg and sperm that have been joined) and preserving it for later implantation in the event that the couple decide to seek IVF using the frozen embryo.
However, this does not always happen. Many couples who have frozen embryos decide to get a divorce or separate before the IVF is ever completed. This truly takes the term “complex asset” to the next level. Who does the embryo belong to? Additionally, couples who are considering IVF may want to have a pre-nuptial or post-nuptial agreement drafted specifically to avoid disputes over the embryo in the future.
