An Alaska minor (child) power of attorney is designed for parents or guardians to delegate temporary decision-making authority for their child to another trusted individual, known as the attorney-in-fact. This document covers various aspects of the child’s care, including healthcare, education, and general welfare, ensuring the granted powers align with the best interests of the child during the specified period.
The document, once completed, must be signed and notarized to validate its legal standing. The parent or guardian can end the document at any time by filling out a revocation form and sending it to the attorney-in-fact through certified mail.
Where to Record: Recording this document isn’t required.
Signing Requirements: Notary public (§ 13.26.600).
Length of Validity: One year. For military parents or guardians on active duty, it can be effective for a duration exceeding one year. However, it is limited to the length of the active duty period plus an additional 30 days (§ 13.26.066(c),(d)).
