Explore Our Child Guardian Consent Form

A Child guardian consent form is used by parents to lay out the details of how they will co-parent their child (or children) even though they are no longer romantically involved. The Agreement addresses issues such as education, legal custody, visitation schedules, health insurance etc. Parents can use this document to come to a mutually agreed plan about how they will raise their children together without needing to give up control of decision making to a judge. If both parents can be civil and work in the best interests of their children, they can save money, time and energy by creating a child guardian form by themselves.
