What is the name of your state? California

Hello:

My husband and I are going out of town, and we are leaving my child with my sister for two days.

I plan on giving her two letters:

One giving her authorization to make medical decisions in case something happens to my child.

and two, a letter giving her custody of my child in case of my and my husband's death. I am planning on including all of our bank accounts in this letter stating that my son is the beneficiary.

Anyhow, do I need to get these documents notorized for them to be valid?

Please advise.

Thank you,

Veronica

Q: Anyhow, do I need to get these documents notorized for them to be valid?

A: What you have described in your post are worthless. Go to a lawyer and ask for a temporary child care power of attorney. While you are there, you also need a will set up and possibly a living trust.
