Utah Minor Child Power of Attorney Form
A Utah minor child power of attorney form enables parents or guardians to legally delegate the temporary care of their children to another individual for up to six (6) months. The delegated powers may cover various aspects of the children’s care, custody, or property (as long as they do not involve consenting to marriage or adoption). This arrangement provides peace of mind to parents or guardians, knowing their children are in safe hands during their absence. The appointed individual, often a trusted family member or friend, is responsible for the children’s well-being, ensuring they receive proper care and attention. Parents and guardians should ensure that the chosen individual is well-informed about the children’s needs, preferences, and any specific instructions before signing the power of attorney form.
