Updated on May 5th, 2023

An Indiana minor (child) power of attorney form enables a parent to select a representative to perform actions and make decisions concerning a minor child. The power of attorney allows the representative to act in a parental capacity in order to ensure the adequate care and custody of the minor. In Indiana, the parental powers may remain effective no longer than 12 months, or for as long as the child is being cared for by an institution (§ 29-3-9-1(c)). After this period expires, the document will be void and a new power of attorney must be executed to reinstate the representative’s parental rights.
