An Indiana minor (child) power of attorney is a document that provides parents and legal guardians the ability to temporarily transfer the responsibilities of caring for a minor to another individual. Unless otherwise indicated, the chosen individual will have all parental authority granted to them while the document is in effect. This power of attorney will only be valid for a period of up to twelve (12) months, however, the Department of Child Services may grant an exception for a parent who is an active member of the United States military. If a military exception is granted, the terms of this form will expire thirty (30) days after the term of active duty is completed.
