my ex husband wants me to sign my legal rights away so that when he cant take our kids to the doctor his new wife can. I dont want to sign my legal rights over. He lives in texas and i live in washington state. is there a medical waiver form that i can sign so i dont have to be forced into signing this paper work?

Absolutely. You do not need to waive your "legal rights" in order to allow your ex's new wife to take the kids to the doctor. I am guessing at what you mean when you say "legal rights" because that term is too broad for me to know specifically what you mean. That said, whatever legal rights you have as a non-custodial parent, they do not need to be modified in order to allow your ex's wife to transport the children to the doctor.
