U.S. Online Minor Child Temporary Travel Consent/ Guardianship Forms and Templates?.

Updated on May 19, 2016

U.S. Child Travel Consent Agreements are documents that are essential to authorize Relatives; such as Grandparents, Uncles, Aunties or close family friends who need a legal agreement to assume responsibility for a child. That provides a secure plan that includes a Caregivers Affidavit for authorizing a named person to have legal responsibility for medical treatment, education and full responsibility for the minor whilst travelling within the USA or abroad.

The most popular features of an American Childs Travel Consent agreement that is for the childs protection and requires legal documentation are: Authorization for Minor's Medical Treatment, Authorization for Temporary Guardianship and a Caregivers Authorization Affidavit. These documents are designed to either give a person partial or full responsibility for the medical and educational needs of a child being cared for.

Also consider:

Last Will & Testament; a property can be placed into a Revocable Trust within a Last Will, Child Custody; this can have a Caregivers Affidavit embeded into it giving a named person full control and resposibility,

Co-habitation for a partner who has entered a new relationship with a child from a previous relationship,

Living Wills, these are useful if a person becomes incapacitated as a Legal Guardian.

The Prenuptial Agreement can be used to define the financial outcome in the event of a relationship failing, thereby protecting the future interests of a minor.

Revocable Trust; protects property as an investment for a child usually to provide welfare and educational funding.

      Having the right documents is especially important for the carer to be able to take full responsibility and that includes very important medical treatment should it be needed.

      This is very interesting. You've covered a wide range of topics and issues here. I know traveling with children, you must have the necessary paperwork or you won't get far.
