Minnesota minor (child) power of attorney gives an individual the authority to temporarily care for a child of another parent/guardian when necessary. This form is known as a delegation of parental authority, and it is often executed when a parent or guardian is at risk of deportation, away on business, on military duty, or incarcerated. This delegation of parental powers can be valid for a period of up to one (1) year if executed by a parent, legal custodian, or nonprofessional guardian of a minor. If the power of attorney is executed by a professional guardian of a minor, this delegation may not exceed a period of thirty (30) days.
