A Nebraska minor (child) power of attorney is a legal instrument that allows parents or guardians to delegate their parental responsibilities to another adult temporarily. This is particularly useful when parents are unavailable due to reasons like military deployment, health issues, or extended absence. The agent has authority to make decisions concerning the child over areas as determined by the parents such as education, medical care, and travel.
However, this power does not extend to consenting to the child’s marriage or adoption. The validity of this document is limited to six months, after which it can be renewed if necessary.
