Updated on May 4th, 2023

A California guardianship power of attorney form is used to nominate a short-term guardian for one or more minor children. The form empowers the guardian with rights to care for the child(ren) and make decisions regarding their healthcare and education. California law has no specific limitation on how long this type of guardianship may last, though it will generally be a temporary appointment ranging from six months to one year.

At any point, while the document is valid, the parent(s) may choose to terminate the guardian’s authority by making a written revocation statement.
