Minor (Child) Power of Attorney Rhode Island – Adobe PDF
The Rhode Island minor power of attorney form is a contract that can be used by parents to appoint an attorney-in-fact to look after the well being of their child during a period of the parent’s absence. This type of appointment is usually only effective for a limited period of time, however, the principal (the parent) may set any contract length that they desire. The attorney-in-fact will be able to give authorizations for the child’s education, health care, and other important matters that require parental approval. In more serious cases where a guardian is needed to look after a child’s welfare, a temporary guardian can be appointed by submitting a petition (Form PC-2.1) to the local County Family Court Office (as per § 33-15.1-14).
