A Texas minor (child) power of attorney lets a parent or guardian entrust a relative or close friend with temporary parental rights over their child. The chosen agent receives authority over decisions relating to the child’s education and medical care.
This form goes into effect according to the parent’s wishes. They may request that it go into effect upon their incapacitation or when they can’t make parenting decisions due to long-term jury duty, deployment, or travel.
This agreement is for six months and automatically renews for six-month terms unless the document states an early termination date, the parent revokes it, or the court terminates it if deemed necessary.
