A Colorado minor (child) power of attorney is designed to empower parents or legal guardians to delegate specific parental responsibilities to a chosen agent for a defined period. The powers granted within the document can cover decisions related to the child’s education, healthcare, and general well-being but don’t extend to consenting to adoption or marriage.
The document must clearly outline the scope of authority granted to the agent in the up to one-year duration for which the powers are valid. The agent, typically a trusted friend or family member, assumes responsibility for the child’s care during the specified timeframe.
Where to Record: Recording this document isn’t required.
