An Alabama minor power of attorney allows the parent(s) of a child to transfer parental and guardianship rights to someone else for a temporary period lasting up to one (1) year. The person obtaining the rights, known as the “agent” or “attorney-in-fact”, will have powers to choose the educational institution the child attends, medical decision-making, and any other parental rights in accordance with State laws.

At the end of the term, the parent can renew the document for another year or let it expire.
