Nebraska Minor Child Power of Attorney Form
A Nebraska minor child power of attorney (Form DC-6-10-1) is a legal document that allows parents to grant caregiving authority to a trusted individual for their child(ren). The state also refers to it as a “Temporary Delegation of Parental Powers” form. The law allows the delegation of parental powers for up to six (6) months, after which they must complete and sign a new record.
This form enables the appointed caretaker, or agent, to manage decisions and assume responsibility for the child’s day-to-day life. The agent’s responsibilities include: 1) acting in a parental capacity, 2) providing consent for the child’s medical care and treatment, and 3) approving school-related matters. However, the agent cannot consent to the child’s marriage or adoption, as these decisions remain with the parents.
