The Nevada minor power of attorney form allows parents to temporarily place their child in the care of another individual without needing to file a court petition. The guardianship is only authorized for a six (6) month period unless the contract is renewed before its expiration date. This form is useful for parents who need to leave their child for military service or other work that requires travel. Assigning a guardian ensures that someone will be able to make decisions regarding the child’s welfare during the parent’s absence. If the child’s other rightful parent is willing and able to care for them and the individual’s whereabouts are known, they must also sign the contract to make it valid.
