Can a known donor renounce his legal obligations as a parent?

According to AR state statue, a known donor can renounce his legal parental obligations to a married couple, unless the wife is acting as a gestational surrogate.  The law does not address donation to unmarried persons.

What if a known donor attempts to enforce his parental rights when the original intent was to be a sperm donor only?

Unknown; this has not yet been addressed.

Does the state allow for second-parent adoption (i.e., for same-sex couples)?


Does the state allow for multiple-parent families (when the child has more than two adults in a parenting role)?

Unknown; this issue has not been addressed.

Does the state recognize “de-facto” or “psychological” parentage (of an “acting” parent without a biological connection)?
