North Carolina minor (child) power of attorney is executed by a parent or guardian to give a third party (the “attorney-in-fact”) temporary decision-making powers over their child. A power of attorney is most often used in situations where the parent/guardian cannot be present to provide care or consent to the minor’s affairs, whether due to hospitalization, travel, emergency, or military duty. An attorney-in-fact is able to perform the parent/guardian’s duties regarding the travel, schooling, and health care of the minor in accordance with the instructions detailed in the form.
