Alabama Minor Child Power of Attorney Form


The Alabama Minor Child Power of Attorney form gives parents a means of giving an individual full responsibility over their child for a specified amount of time. The document states the appointed Agent has the power to make decisions to the fullest extent of the parent, such as signing any waivers, aiding the child in whatever way required, and handling any and all school matters as long as they benefit the child. Alabama law mandates that power cannot be granted for a period longer than one (1) year.
