A Kansas minor (child) power of attorney gives parents and legal custodians the ability to delegate parental responsibilities over a minor to another adult temporarily. The parent/custodian will have the option to grant full authority to the representative or to list specific powers and responsibilities. This power of attorney is only valid for a period of one (1) year; however, Kansas law allows for a renewal of one (1) additional year.
Executing this power of attorney does not deprive either parent of any authority of the child of any authority regarding the care and custody of the child. The parents may revoke these powers at any time, and upon doing so, the child should be returned to the parent’s custody as soon as possible.
