Power of Attorney for Child Basics

You can't always be there to take care of your children. With a Power of Attorney for Child, you can give someone you trust the ability to make decisions in your absence. Help ensure your children get the care they need, no matter what happens, with a Power of Attorney for Child.

Use the Power of Attorney for Child document if:

  • You are leaving your child(ren) in someone's care for an extended period of time.
    You want a Power of Attorney for your minor child in place in the event you are unexpectedly unavailable to make decisions for your child(ren).

When someone you trust is watching your children while you're away, you can temporarily assign parental, custody or guardian rights to them using a Power of Attorney for Child. With this document, another person will have legal authority for health, medical and other major decisions, with certain limitations, when you're absent. A Power of Attorney for Child is most often used by parents to allow a temporary caretaker to make decisions when they're gone for work, vacation or otherwise out of town. A Power of Attorney for Child is intended for use over a period of time. However, many states limit the timeframe to no more than six (6) months.
