A Hawaii minor (child) power of attorney is a legal instrument that allows parents or legal guardians to designate an agent to make decisions on behalf of their minor child. This document grants the agent specific powers to act in various capacities, including educational and medical, while the parent or guardian cannot do so themselves due to immigration matters, illness, incarceration, or military deployment.
The form is typically effective for up to one year, ensuring continuity of care and protection in the parent’s absence. It can also be revoked at any time through written notice.
Where to Record: Recording this document isn’t required.
Signing Requirements: Notary public (§ 551E-3(b)).
Length of Validity: Not more than one year (§ 560:5-105).
