A Kansas minor (child) power of attorney is a legal document that allows parents or legal custodians to temporarily delegate parental responsibilities over a minor to another trusted adult. This can be useful if the parent will be away or indisposed and unable to care for their child for a period of time.
The form can grant complete authority to the representative or specify certain powers and responsibilities. All individuals with legal custody of the child must consent for the form to be valid. A power of attorney is only effective for one year or for the duration of the parent’s active duty plus 30 days if they are on active duty. The parent/custodian retains their authority and can revoke the powers granted at any time.
