A North Dakota minor (child) power of attorney form allows an attorney-in-fact to temporarily handle a parent or guardian’s duties and responsibilities regarding their minor child(ren). The general caretaking of the child(ren) is delegated to the attorney-in-fact, as well as duties regarding the child(ren)’s education and health care.

An attorney-in-fact is authorized to enroll the child(ren) in school, communicate with the school board staff on behalf of the parents/guardians, and grant consent for the child(ren) in educational matters. Health care decisions (e.g., consent to tests, treatments, medical procedures) are also entrusted to the attorney-in-fact, including medical, dental, optometric, and mental health care. Under North Dakota law, a minor (child) power of attorney for child care can grant authority for a period of no longer than six (6) months.
