North Dakota Minor Child Power of Attorney Form

A North Dakota Minor Child Power of Attorney is deemed to be a legally-binding document, so long as it meets all of the provisions stated in §30.1-26-04. To be specific, these provisions allow for a parent or guardian to delegate their powers relating to the care, custody, or property of their minor child or ward to another party (the Agent) for a maximum period of six (6) months. The parent or guardian may select which powers they wish to bestow the Agent, excluding those regarding the consent to marriage or the adoption of the child or ward. As is the case with any Power of Attorney, the execution of this form will not result in any loss to the rights of the party who executes it i.e. a parent or guardian.


State Laws & Signing Requirements

State Laws – North Dakota Century Code, Chapter 30.1-26 and Uniform Power of Attorney Act

Signing Requirements – Although parents and guardians do not technically have to meet any signing requirements for their Minor Child POA form to be considered valid, considering that their child/ren are directly concerned, it is best to take precautionary measures when executing it. As such, they are recommended to have a Notary Public and/or two (2) witnesses view them sign the form.
