The Mississippi minor power of attorney is a legal form delegating certain guardianship powers over a minor child to a designated representative. This form must be completed by one or both of the children’s parents or guardians. The guardian will have the authority to make decisions pertaining to things such as education, health care, travel, and other similar matters. They do not have the authority to consent to major life decisions such as marriage, adoption, abortion, and termination of parental rights. This power of attorney form is only effective for up to one (1) year.
