Once you've printed a copy of the medical release form, be sure to:
- Fill out the form completely.
- Verify all of the phone numbers.
- Include primary and secondary insurance information.
- Have the form notarized at a notary public. (Do not sign it until you're in the presence of the notary!)
- If you share legal custody with your ex, make arrangements to have the form notarized together so that you can both sign it.
- Consider having multiple copies notarized.
- Keep notarized copies (not photocopies of the original) at home, at your ex's home, in your child's backpack, and anywhere your child frequents on a regular basis (such as a babysitter's house).
