A German woman forged her ex-husband’s signature twice to undergo in ivf with eggs fertilized by his sperm while they were married. Now a court has ruled he has to pay child support for a son he didn’t agree to have.  But the ex-husband argues that he should not be legally obliged to pay child support because he had revoked his permission for the eggs to be used after he separated from his wife.

A German woman forged her ex-husband’s signature twice to undergo in vitro fertilisation treatment with eggs fertilized by his sperm while they were married. Now a court has ruled he has to pay child support for a son he didn’t agree to have. The couple only known as Karl and Inge (because surnames aren’t given in court cases in Germany) gave their written permission for doctors at a local clinic to freeze her eggs fertilized with Karl’s sperm so they could have children later in life. This occured five years ago. After getting divorced she forged Karl’s signature twice to use a fertilized egg to become pregnant and gave birth to a boy.

The thirty seven-year-old Karl has filed a lawsuit after he became legally obligated to provide child support following the birth of his son by his forty two-year-old ex-wife. A regional court in Munich recently ruled that he is required to give financial support for his child who had been born without his explicit consent. But Karl argues that he should not be legally obligated to pay child support because he had revoked his permission for the eggs to be used after he separated from his wife.
