Minor (Child) Power of Attorney Form New York – PDF
The New York minor power of attorney form is a document that parents can use to authorize a third party to temporarily have parental rights over their child. This type of arrangement is usually used during a period of a parent’s absence due to work, military deployment, illness, or education. The designated attorney-in-fact will be able to make decisions regarding the child’s education, health care, and other choices that require an adult’s permission. To assign a permanent or standby guardian for a minor if the parent(s) is ill or unfit/unable to take care of their child, the proper guardianship forms must be filed with the local court (see Family Court Forms or Surrogate Court Forms).
