Minor (Child) Power of Attorney Forms


The minor power of attorney is for any parent that would like to administer caretaking rights for their child to someone else. This would allow the caretaker, known as the “agent” or “attorney-in-fact”, temporary custody of the child and to make parenting decisions. Most States allow a maximum of 6-12 months for powers. There is no need for a court, the parent and the agent are required to sign in the presence of a notary public and/or witness(es) in accordance with State law.
