Thanks for visiting our website.
We provide two types of Powers of Attorney that may suit your legal needs:
(a) Non-Durable Power of Attorney for Physical and Health Care of Minor Child, and:
(b) Limited Non-Durable Power of Attorney for Child (ren) Care.
(A) A Non-durable Power of Attorney for Physical and Health Care of Minor Child permits an Agent ("attorney-in-fact") to make decisions about the child's medical treatment for a limited period of time.
The powers you grant in the above mentioned document will terminate if you become disabled or incompetent.
A Non-Durable Power of Attorney for Physical and Health Care of Minor Child is valid for the time period that you specify in it, or until it is revoked by you.
Among the powers discussed in a Non Durable Power of Attorney for health care are:
to decide what king of health care is needed, what kind of medical treatment or hospitalization to choose, to withhold or withdraw any type of medical treatment or procedure, to make any necessary effort to prolong the child’s life in the absence of a parent, to have access to the child’s medical records.
This POA is not giving you as 'agent' the power or authority to authorize the termination of life-support, food or hydration systems.
Please note that the Nondurable Power of Attorney for Physical and Health Care of Minor Child (Medical Power of Attorney) must be dated and acknowledged before a notary public or signed by two witnesses.
(B) Limited Non-Durable Power of Attorney for Child(ren) Care is an important legal document. It gives the person whom you designate (your "agent", "attorney-in-fact") broad powers regarding the minor child(ren).
Limited Non-durable Power of Attorney for Child Care is valid for the time period specified in it, or until the Power of Attorney for Child Care is revoked.
This type of Power of Attorney will authorize the person you have appointed to perform all legal acts that you could have done yourself as a parent.
A Child Care Power of Attorney authorizes the Agent to have temporary custody of an unmarried minor child with whom the minor child may reside, and to make medical decisions in regards to said child.
By using this type of the Power of Attorney you can grant one or more of the following powers:
• to provide for the safety of the child; education, and welfare of the child;
• enrollment in a school or sport activities;
• signing documents in connection with the care and medical treatment;
• to perform any parental acts in regards to discipline and supervision, arbitration of disputes, to act as a guardian for the custody;
• other powers regarding your child (for example: travel arrangements, to pick the child up from school, etc).

|I believe I am in need of a power of attorney not sure which kind. My daughter is living out of state with her Grandparents to go to school. She is 16. The school and Grandfathers insurance need some kind of indication from me that they can make decisions. Both power of attonery and temp guardianship have been mentioned.
Thank you, Teri

This document allows you to delegate many parental duties to your agent (Attorney in fact). Among these powers are:
To consent to any necessary medical treatment, surgery, therapy, and other medical care; to employ and discharge any person responsible for the care of children; to provide for welfare, child safety, education, to enroll in schools and after school activities; to act for you in your place and your name for providing care, clothing, education, etc; to perform parental acts including maintenance, supervision, discipline, arbitration of disputes, enrollment in sports activities, etc.
