This Essay first reviews current state imprecise childcare parentage laws and then considers the importance of parental intentions in such laws. This Essay goes on to suggest new mechanisms for formal declarations of intended childcare parentage. Such declarations would not necessarily determine childcare parentage under law. Still, they would be quite helpful when courts assess earlier actions when determining imprecise childcare parentage issues.
