An Arkansas guardianship over a minor child power of attorney can be used by the parents of minor children to select a family member or close friend to act as the guardian. Arkansas law does not specify a limit on the term of validity for this type of arrangement. Unless an advance expiration date is established by the parents, the agent’s authority will only be terminated upon the execution of a revocation document.
The guardian’s parental rights may be renewed at any point with another power of attorney document.
