Updated on October 28th, 2021

An Alabama minor (child) power of attorney gives parents and court-assigned guardians a means of nominating a trusted person (the “guardian”) with temporary parental powers over their child. The form should be used if the parent will be leaving their child for a considerable length of time, be it because of military active duty, extended hospitalization, incarceration, destruction of the home, or another reasonable cause.

From the moment a minor POA becomes effective (on signing or after a certain date), the guardian will need to make sure the child’s needs are met, including access to a safe home, food, access to education, and medical attention (when necessary). An individual power of attorney form needs to be completed for each child.
