A Wyoming minor (child) power of attorney is used when a parent or guardian requires an individual (referred to as the “attorney-in-fact”) to handle certain tasks regarding their child. If the parent or guardian expects to be away from their child for an extended period of time, they may choose to grant a general authority allowing the attorney-in-fact to receive temporary custody of the child, provide care, and handle decision-making duties concerning the child’s affairs. A parent or guardian may also use this form to delegate individual tasks, for example, authorizing the attorney-in-fact to sign on their behalf for the child’s school or healthcare-related matters.
Granting powers to an attorney-in-fact does not revoke or modify the parent or guardian’s parental authority, and they may revoke any decision or action carried out by the attorney-in-fact. A Wyoming minor (child) power of attorney is valid as per the duration and conditions specified on the form by the parent or guardian.
