A Colorado minor (child) power of attorney is used for the parent or guardian of a minor or incapacitated individual to temporarily delegate responsibilities regarding care, custody, education, recreation, and property to a trusted attorney-in-fact. While the attorney-in-fact will have fairly broad authority to act in the parent/guardian’s place, they will not have the power to consent to adoption or to the marriage of the incapacitated person or minor. Once executed, this power of attorney may be valid for a maximum period of twelve (12) months. This document may be revoked in writing at any time by the parent or guardian.
