Kentucky Minor Child POA (Form AOC-796)


A Kentucky minor child power of attorney (Form AOC-796) permits a parent or guardian to choose an attorney-in-fact to oversee their child’s well-being. The document defines the extent of the attorney-in-fact’s legal abilities, including making decisions about the child’s healthcare, education, and other essential matters. It guarantees that the provider meets the child’s needs when the parent or guardian cannot be present due to work, vacation, family emergencies, or other matters. By signing this document, both parties consent to the agreement’s conditions, providing legal protection to the parent, child, and attorney-in-fact. Should either party violate the terms of the agreement, they could face legal consequences.
