A Hawaii minor (child) power of attorney is used to grant an individual the right to provide all care necessary to a minor if the minor’s parent or guardian is unable to care for them temporarily. This power of attorney is often executed when a parent is facing an illness, immigration issues, military service, or incarceration. The chosen representative will have all necessary authority regarding the minor’s care, custody, and property in their parent’s absence. However, the caregiver will not have the legal authority to consent to the child’s marriage or adoption.
