A New Hampshire minor (child) power of attorney is a legal document that allows a parent or guardian to appoint an agent to make decisions for their child during their absence due to circumstances like hospitalization, military deployment, or other hardships. This legal document ensures that the appointed caretaker can interact with the child’s school and doctor with authority, safeguarding the child’s welfare.
It’s a practical solution for the temporary unavailability of a parent, allowing a trusted individual, often a relative or close friend, to manage the child’s needs.
Where to Record: Recording this document isn’t required.
Signing Requirements: Notary public (§ 564-E:105).
Length of Validity: Valid until revoked (§ 564-E:110).
