A Massachusetts minor power of attorney form is a legal document that permits the transfer of certain parental powers from a child’s parents to a designated guardian. This form can be a useful tool for parents who will be away from their children for a significant period of time and need someone to care for their kids. The appointed guardian will only be given powers per the parents’ instructions. These powers usually pertain to educational and healthcare-related decisions. In Massachusetts, the law states that this type of guardianship arrangement can only last up to 60 days, after which another power of attorney document will have to be executed.
