§ 15-8.1-706. Effect of dissolution of marriage or withdrawal of consent.
(a) If a marriage is dissolved by final decree of divorce before transfer or implantation of gametes or embryos, the former spouse is not a parent of the resulting child unless the former spouse consented in a signed record, with notice to the other spouse and the individual giving birth, that, if assisted reproduction were to occur after a divorce, the former spouse would be a parent of the child.
(b) Consent of an individual to assisted reproduction, pursuant to § 15-8.1-704, may be withdrawn by that person in a signed record, with notice to the individual giving birth and any other intended parent, before transfer or implantation of gametes or embryos. An individual who withdraws consent under this subsection is not a parent of the resulting child.
