A Connecticut minor (child) power of attorney is a legal document that allows parents or legal guardians to delegate specific parental responsibilities to a chosen agent for a defined period of no longer than one year.
The agent, typically a trusted friend or family member, assumes responsibility for the child’s care during the specified timeframe. This document offers a practical way for parents to ensure their child’s well-being when they are temporarily unable to fulfill their parental responsibilities, due to travel, medical reasons, or military deployment.
Where to Record: The Probate Court for the district in which the minor resides, is domiciled, or located.
Signing Requirements: Notary public and two witnesses (§ 1-350d).
Length of Validity: One year (§ 45a-622(a)).
