Arkansas Minor Child Power of Attorney Form


An Arkansas minor child power of attorney form grants a trusted individual the legal authority to care for a child when the parent(s) is/are away due to work, travel, or personal matters. Completing this form before the absence is crucial; parents should carefully select the agent to ensure they can adequately care for the child(ren). Both parties should retain a copy of the completed form.

Parents can specify the power of attorney duration by including an expiration date in the document or use a revocation form to end it anytime. If issues arise with the agent, parents should promptly terminate the agreement and arrange for another trusted person to assume the agent role.

State Laws: § 28-68-213

Time Active: No statute.

Signing Requirements: The parent’s signature must be notarized.
