DA Form 7666, Parental Consent is a form used to obtain the agreement of both parents on the custodial arrangements expressed on their Family Care Plan. The form is a necessary part of the Family Care plan paperwork and allows a partner or other individual to act as temporary guardian of any dependents while the service member is performing their military duties.
The newest version of the form - often incorrectly referred to as the DD Form 7666 - was released by the Department of the Army (DA) in September 2009. An up-to-date DA Form 7666 fillable version is available for digital filing and download below or can be supplied through the APD Forms website.
The Family Care Plan - or FCP - is a tool used for designating a guardian that takes care of a service member's dependent child or children while they are away. The FCP is applicable only to single soldiers with kids, dual military members and parents with a separation agreement, not for soldiers married to civilians or soldiers without kids.
