Custodian Release by Minor

How To Use

This Release is an important document for the Custodian to obtain from the former minor upon reaching their majority, normally 21.

If the Custodian relationship extends until the minor reaches an older age, often 25, then the same document should be signed at the same time the property is turned over. The examination of property should precede the turnover, very much as in a real estate transaction.

This is an important agreement to have signed for the benefit of parents with their minor children so there are no later disputes about this issue, especially with families having trusts. In a very practical sense, it virtually eliminates the opportunity for this to be used as a wedge in later matters regarding estates or other issues.

  • Make multiple copies. Have a notary witness the transaction if possible.
