A lesbian couple wants children but can't afford the medical procedure to get it done, so they would like me to get them pregnant. They don't want me to be involved in raising the children and I don't want to be financially responsible for them. We want to draw up a contract that signs away my rights to the kids and also signs away their right to get any monetary child support from me.
The short answer is no. Getting involved in this is n invitation to emotional and financial trouble.
If you do this, you will still be liable for child support. You can donate sperm and not be responsible for child support, but the way you describe is not it. You can not just sign a piece of paper and rid yourself of any responsibility for a child you helped make. If you want to be a sperm donor, make sure this is done through a licensed clinic, and with the advice of an attorney.
Talk to an adoption counsel in your jurisdiction. Be prepared to learn that being the kindly donor may well not be a roll that carries no future responsibility.
Any such contract may not be legally binding, and may not prevent a court from potentially ordering you to pay child support in the future. Please contact an experienced family law attorney in your County to discuss the legal specifics of your case.
