Louisiana Minor Child Power of Attorney Form

The Louisiana Minor Child Power of Attorney serves to provide parents and guardians with a legal avenue to delegate their parental or guardianship powers to another party for a limited amount of time. It is particularly useful for parents and guardians who cannot guarantee their availability to assert their duties of care towards their child/ren, such as military personnel, those with occasional or heavy travel commitments, or anyone who does shift work.
