I received several inquiries after my recent post on Letters of Intent, or instructions for guardians or caretakers of your children or pets. I have specific forms I have developed for children, pets, and children with special needs. If you would like pricing for those, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, or message me through my law office’s Facebook page.
Letters of Intent can be created by you (versus an attorney), and many parents have done just that. These can be in-depth, broad, more limited–it’s up to you. To guide you, here are links to three examples, all from moms who were dying of cancer:
- A simple, specific, instructional Letter of Intent, “Mummy Manual”: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-346306/The-mummy-manual.html
- An in-depth, broad, far-reaching Letter of Intent with guidance: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/health/news/10084492/Dying-mother-leaves-20-point-plan-for-happiness-for-her-family.html
- Letters written to child to be given at certain life moments, a series of Letters of Intent: http://metro.co.uk/2015/07/23/mum-terminally-ill-with-cancer-writes-letters-to-her-four-year-old-to-last-a-lifetime-5308613/
What will be most helpful to your guardian? What information will help your child the most? The links to the different letters could be used to guide you in adapting such letters to specific situations, such as pets.
