A Nevada minor (child) power of attorney form is a legal instrument for parents or guardians to appoint one (1) or two (2) temporary guardian(s) who they can rely on to care for their minor children in their absence. The temporary guardian(s) will be responsible for the child’s well-being, being given the authority to oversee their health care treatment and school-related matters.

The POA form is required to be executed by both parents or guardians, provided they are not divorced and they share custody of the minor. Otherwise, the form can be executed by the parent or guardian with legal custody. The appointment in this form is effective for six (6) months from the signing date and is subject to revocation by a custodial parent or the court at any time during the six (6) month term.
