Vermont Guardianship Agreement (Form PMG61)


A Vermont minor child power of attorney form is a legal document that enables parents or guardians to delegate the care of their children to a trusted individual for a specific period. This arrangement offers a practical solution for parents who may be temporarily unable to fulfill their childcare responsibilities for various reasons, such as work commitments, medical treatment, or travel. The appointed agent, typically a close family member or friend, assumes the responsibility of caring for the child and making decisions in their best interest when the parent is absent.

It is essential for parents and guardians to clearly outline the agent’s duties and responsibilities in the power of attorney form, ensuring that the agent understands their role and obligations. Proper execution of this document provides peace of mind to parents, knowing their children will be cared for in their absence.

State Laws: Not specified.

Signing Requirements (§ 3503): The form requires signatures from the parent(s), one (1) witness, and a notary public.
