Power of Attorney of A Minor

A Power of Attorney (POA) for Child allows parents or guardians to temporarily grant another adult the right to make parental decisions for their child if they are unavailable.

Having a Power of Attorney for your child is a useful way to help you protect your children and ensure they always have the best care, even when you’re not around. While you are available for your child, you are still the primary decision-maker.

Therefore, by appointing another person as your child’s temporary caregiver, you don’t lose your parental powers. Depending on your state’s naming practices, the temporary caregiver is known as the attorney-in-fact or agent.
