Default Letters of consent for minors

We have had quite a few posts inquiring what is necessary to take minors with them when both parents are not going. What I would love to see is one of our great Cruisemates family who is an attorney write up and post a generic document that would be legal so that others here could copy and print it out. They would just have to fill in the blanks for the names etc. We might even be able to find a place on the homepage for it to be accessed. How about it folks, we have any attorneys out there that would be willing to step up?

24 cruises and counting!

Guys, thanks. I knew there were great people out there that would step up and do this for the others. Thanks you very much and I will see about getting these forms put in archives, FAQ's and maybe some other place as well so it will be readily available.

Great idea Jim, thanks. I've had to make up my own forms in the past, and although I've always carried them, no-one has ever asked to see them!

While both of these documents are great, one piece of information missing is the insurance information for the minor child. Also, it would be best to make some kind of statement within the document that states you allow said person to seek medical attention for your minor child. Just my 2 cents.
