A Florida minor (child) power of attorney enables parents and legal guardians to appoint a trusted caretaker for their child in circumstances where they are temporarily unable to provide adequate care themselves. This form is often used when the child’s primary caregiver will be away for extended periods of time due to military service, immigration issues, or incarceration. Florida law also allows for a minor’s extended family to petition the court to obtain temporary custody as per Chapter 751 of the Florida Statutes.
