    Default Directive to Physicians on Behalf of a Minor


    I am filling out a legal form: "DIRECTIVE TO PHYSICIANS ON BEHALF OF A MINOR"

    1. I am married, do we need two forms, one each for me and my wife for our child, each with duplicate details?

    2. I assume the two witnesses cannot be blood or family, but do they have to be someone I know? Can I just use other people at the location where I obtain Notary services?

    3. Do I need to file the directive with some authority or office in Texas, or just keep in with my important papers?

    Thank you,

    You're talking about the statutory form under the Texas Health and Safety Code, Sec. 166.033? I don't see why both parents can't join in executing a single form - for that matter, Sec. 166.035 refers to parents in the plural. I don't see any requirement that the document be filed with a government agency.

    It helps for witnesses to be people you know, in case there's a later question as to the authenticity of the signatures; but the notary may be able to provide witnesses - I suggest asking the notary in advance, rather than trying to rope people in at the last second. Note, notarization is not required. Sec. 166.036.
