The Tennessee parental guardianship for minor child power of attorney form is a document that can be used to assign temporary parental rights to an attorney-in-fact. Often a document such as this will be used when hardship strikes a parent or guardian and their health or finances prevent them from being able to care for their child in the manner they deserve and require. In the State of Tennessee, a temporary power attorney for childcare endures for no more than six (6) months before having to be renewed. Once the form is executed and notarized, the assigned caregiver will have the authority to make medical and educational decisions on the child’s behalf.
