Well, this is what I would expect. This makes the most sense. But, how do you know this? Is there some place to find these sorts of rules?

You're not leaving the country. You don't need any kind of papers to travel within the US. The issue of state lines is a non-issue.

Generally, with other people's children for an organized function, I think it's wise to have their permission slips on your person. But not because of crossing state lines.

If it would ease your mind, go to your local police station and confirm.

I agree with Lisa, call your sheriff's office or police station and ask. Sounds like you need Someone In Authority to say it.

Default Re: Crossing state lines with a minor

Iíve travelled out of state several times with kids who werenít mine. Most of the time we flew. Iíve never been stopped or questioned. Theyíve always assumed the kids were mine even when some were Chinese and some werenít.

There is nothing illegal about it unless there is some kind of court order. I think a phone call to the parent would clear up any concern quickly. I donít know if any paperwork. You could have the parents sign and notarized something but I would never sign something like that myself.

The only time I have heard of any travel restriction was if the child was in a county/state foster care system which I assume isnt the case here or you would have said.

Default Re: Crossing state lines with a minor

I take kids without their parents on field trips all the time for my job. None of the kids look like they could be my biological children. If I have more than one vehicle transporting kids, I make sure the driver has the permission slips for the children riding in their vehicle. I know the liability issues are different with a company sponsored trip vs privately transporting children. If you're really worried, I would ask for a copy of the permission slips from the leader.

You know what's weird - we don't have permission slips for this trip! We have the health forms, and that's it! The troop leader registered all of us for the camping trip, and we have yet to fill out forms for this camping trip, other than the health forms. And the health forms are not specific to this trip. They are filled out once and kept on file with the troop for as long as we are in the troop!

I am going to make my own permission slip to be signed by the parents of the girls I am taking, and also have a copy of the health forms and insurance cards in case of an emergency.

I'd double check that's it's ok to have extra copies of that information made and carried around. If I'd provided the info and expected it to be kept secure and private, I would be livid to know a parent had made copies and was carrying it around. Holding on to the health card if my child wasn't old enough to look after it? Absolutely. Necessary and makes sense. But a parent carrying around an extra copy of my child's private health information with no idea how it was being stored and protected? No.

And with all of the concern here, in particular, about school permission forms etc. being used to vax children without parental consent? Again, I'd sign a permission form provided by an organization I trusted and could review, but not something a parent whipped up and handed me.

For your own protection, I'd just share your concerns with leadership and ask them when forms will be signed and who will carry them. It might save you the headache of trying to come up with all of this yourself. The organization really should be looking after all of this for you.

And not to mention it would seem awkward for a parent to produce her own personal permission slip.

It is understood that you are taking them with permission. The police do not work that way. Air travel would be a different story. If you took them without the parents' knowledge completely different story. It will be fine.

It is not a communist country that asks you to show papers on demand.

Default Re: Crossing state lines with a minor

I would just have information for the parents so they could be called. If a situation arises where there isn't time to call the parents, nobody will be checking for health forms/insurance cards. I can't think of a situation where you would be making medical decisions for anyone on an 8 hour road trip or where anyone would stop you to make sure each child with you is there consensually. I know people have said this multiple times but it really will be ok to just drive the children without paperwork. It is not illegal, you are taking them with permission. Worst case scenario, paperwork won't matter anyway. Best case scenario, everyone gets where they are going and information remains private.
