A Connecticut minor (child) power of attorney gives a parent/guardian the power to temporarily grant a trusted representative the right to carry out parental duties in their stead. The representative, also known as the “attorney-in-fact,” is often a close relative or trusted family friend. This power of attorney is generally executed when the parent/guardian is unwell and or absent for an extended period of time, often for reasons such as active military duty. This form allows for the parent to choose to grant specific parental powers to their selected agent or to grant the agent full legal authority allowed by the state of Connecticut to act on their behalf.
