Welcome to Just Answer
I am a Solicitor and will assist you today.
I can confirm that your friend will not have parental responsibility for any child that is conceived - unless you decide to put the sperm donors name on the birth certificate of a child.
If you both agree that the sperm donor should not have parental responsibility for the child then you should not put his name on the childs birth certificate.
Be aware that the sperm donor could seek to change his mind and ask the court for parental responsibilty. You cannot opt out of this and the court will decide such an issue and if the donor can spend time with the child.
You could also change your mind and seek child maintenance through the child maintenance service in the future.
You both need to be clear at the outset as there is no way of contracting out of the ability to claim maintenance or seeking to spend time with the child.
