South Carolina Minor Child Power of Attorney Form


A parent or guardian’s number one priority is protecting their child from harm and providing them with a healthy and supportive environment. A problem therefore arises at times they cannot attend to their parental or guardianship duties. Fortunately, this problem can easily be solved by filing a South Carolina Minor Child Power of Attorney. Unlike casually arranging for another party to take care of their child/ren, this document makes it crystal clear in legally-binding terms what obligations this party (referred to as the Agent) must uphold whenever they are acting in the role of a temporary guardian.
