An Oregon minor power of attorney form permits parents to legally appoint a temporary guardian to care for their child. Most often, an attorney-in-fact is assigned to care for a minor because the parent is required to travel due to reasons such as work, military deployment, or family commitments. The duration of the contract must be limited to a period no greater than six (6) months, except for servicemember-parents and school administrator attorneys-in-fact. A servicemember can appoint a guardian for the duration of their deployment plus thirty (30) days and if the appointee is a school administrator, they may be appointed for a period of up to twelve (12) months. The power of attorney can be revoked at any time by the principal (the parent) by written notice.
