Minor (Child) Power of Attorney Form | North Dakota

Updated on May 10th, 2023

A North Dakota minor power of attorney form enables parents to authorize another adult to take care of their child for a limited period of time. Legally, the arrangement can only last for up to six months and gives the appointed individual (the attorney-in-fact) parental rights regarding all decisions except for marriage and adoption. However, if the parent chooses to, they may further limit the types of decisions that the attorney-in-fact is allowed to make for the minor on their behalf. Common reasons for designating a temporary attorney-in-fact for the care of a minor usually involve the parent being absent due to work, military deployment, or other obligations.
