A South Carolina minor power of attorney form is a document that can be used to delegate guardianship powers over a child to a trusted individual. While there are no laws that clearly define the length of the period the guardian will have custody over the child, it is commonplace that the agreement endures for a period of six to 12 months before a new document will need to be drafted and signed. During this period, the selected guardian will have the same power as the parent or initial legal guardian would. They will be obligated to make decisions with regard to the child’s health care and education, ensuring that they are operating with the minor’s best interests in mind.
