Frozen embryos the focus of divorce in California courtroom
Very often its kids who are the receiving end when a couple decides to divorce and now the battle has extended to frozen embryos, as reported by okcfox.com. Mimi Lee and now estranged husband Stephen Findley who wed in 2010 have taken their divorce down a different path that could set legal precedent. The battle currently in a San Francisco courtroom is over frozen embryos and who should attain the rights.
According to California divorce attorneys the couple decided to have their embryos frozen since they feared that Lee would be rendered infertile since she was undergoing treatment for breast cancer.
Reports suggest that Findley has petitioned for the embryos to be destroyed in accordance with the terms of agreement signed by the couple. The San Jose Mercury News has reported that the drama was in its final stages with Mimi Lee getting the opportunity to tell her story to the judge. Findley, a wealthy investment executive testified in court and said that he was worried that the embryos bearing his children could cause a problem if the couple were not together.
He claimed to have wanted to be involved in their lives but a divorce would make it a difficult proposition. Findley also alleges that Lee tried to extort millions when he asked for a divorce and brought the issue of the embryos to the forefront.
Lee’s divorce attorneys have urged Superior Court Judge Anne-Christine Massullo to consider that destroying the embryos would deny their client, who is infertile, the ability to enjoy her fundamental and constitutional right to have children and form a protective bond between parent and child. On the other hand, Findley has reiterated that the couple has signed documents from UCSF’s fertility center that clearly has provisions for destruction of the frozen embryos in the event of a divorce.
