Laws & Legal Issues in the State of Arizona
Arizona recently passed a new law that is not without controversy concerning frozen embryos and a divorce. The Arizona law went into effect last month and it gives legal custody of the embryos to the parent that wishes to have a child after separation. The other parent has no legal obligation to the child.
This is the second go around for a lane splitting bill in Arizona, the last time being in 2010. This time, the bill is being introduced by the Senator of Arizona, David Farnsworth. Included in the bill are educational guidelines to be proposed by the Arizona Department of Public Safety. As expected, the bill is not without controversy.
