Ohio Minor Child Power of Attorney Form
An Ohio minor child power of attorney form permits a parent or guardian to grant decision-making authority to a trusted individual for their child’s care during their absence. Also called a limited power of attorney for child care, this form assigns the agent responsible for the child’s welfare, including school enrollment, consenting to school-related matters, and providing medical treatment. The principal must file the form with the juvenile court within five (5) days of signing. This arrangement brings peace of mind to parents knowing that someone cares for their child when they cannot.
