This easy-to-use interactive form will produce a sample Power of Attorney for Minor document that can be used for a caregiver of a minor child that is not the custodial parent or legal guardian.
This document may be particularly helpful when establishing residency for the child's school enrollment or to provide medical consent. This document does not take custody away from the parent and can be revoked at any time.A power of attorney (POA) is a legal way to have one person act on behalf of another.
A Power of Attorney document gives someone authority to act on your behalf on matters that you list in the document. The power can be specific to a certain task or can cover many duties including financial and medical. The power can start immediately or only after some event occurs such as the principal becoming mentally incompetent. A power of attorney does not take away your right to act on your behalf.
ALL STATES ARE REQUIRED TO RECOGNIZE MILITARY POWERS OF ATTORNEY
Federal law demands that a Military Power of Attorney instrument be given legal effect without regard to specific state law “from any requirement of form, substance, formality, or recording” that may be normally required by different states. See (10 U.S.C. §1044(b)).
