- One partner donates an egg, and the other partner carries that egg.
- A couple uses an egg or sperm donation from a person they know (as opposed to a licensed facility), and then that person wishes to claim maternity or paternity.
- A child is born as the result of an affair, and the spouse wishes to maintain rights to a child that is not his.
- A couple freezes embryos for a later date, and then divorces – and one partner wishes to keep the embryos, and one wishes to have them destroyed.
