questions & answers

Question: My sister and her husband are divorcing and he will get custody of their two boys. He is active in the Military and currently overseas.

I would like some form of legal documentation to be able to enroll them in school and seek medical care if needed. What is the quickest, easiest, and least court dependent way to do this? All parties are in agreement.
