Hi. I am mom to three children and stepmom to another three. My question is about signing forms for school, sports, etc. Every year, when school starts, I fill out many forms for each child. Normally, I sign the forms for my biological children and have my husband sign the ones for his biological children. This year, though, he has been very busy with a project at work and has not been around much the past couple of weeks to sign forms, many of which need to be returned by "tomorrow." He thinks it would be easiest for me to just sign the forms myself or sign his signature (with his permission) on them, but I'm a little nervous about doing either. My questions are: Do the others of you sign forms for your stepkids and if so, have you ever had a problem legally with this? What should I be concerned about? Am I just being paranoid? Help?
