Going out of town, leaving baby Need a will?

We are going out of town in a few weeks on an "adult" only trip. We are leaving our 6 month old with family. We have not had a chance to make a will in case something happens to my husband and I. Does anyone know of a "temporary" will that I can get online?

  • Yes, you def. need a will. I think they are important trip or not. I would call a lawyer and ask for further assistance on a temp. one.

  • The most important thing to leave with the baby is a "Permission to Treat" form. This will allow your relatives to get quick medical help for the baby in an emergency without having to track you down first. You can find examples online - it's a simple 1 page form.

    Be sure to have it notarized.
