Kentucky Minor Child POA (Form AOC-796)


A Kentucky minor child power of attorney (Form AOC-796) is a document enabling a parent or legal guardian to appoint an attorney-in-fact to manage their child’s care within specified contexts. The form should clearly outline the scope of the attorney-in-fact’s decision-making powers, such as handling the child’s medical treatments or education-related matters, as determined by the parent or guardian. This legal tool is useful when parents or guardians are temporarily unavailable or unable to care for their children. Utilizing a minor child power of attorney ensures the child maintains their well-being during the parent’s or guardian’s absence.
