- Complete the form with one or both of the grandchild's parents. If you are taking care of multiple grandchildren, you will need to fill out one form per grandchild.
- Print out the form, but do not sign it yet. You and the parent will need to sign it in front of a notary.
- After the form is signed and notarized, you must file it with your county's juvenile court within five days. The juvenile court might have additional forms they'd like you to fill out, like a cover sheet. Ask the clerk when you arrive to make sure that you have everything you need.
This form does not give you authority over your grandchild's adoption, marriage or custody arrangements. It only allows you to temporarily enroll your grandchild in school, access their educational information, provide consent for educational activities and get medical treatment for the child.
