Massachusetts Minor Child Power of Attorney Form
In addition to the fulfilling parental or guardianship obligations, individuals may need to carry out personal or business tasks.

This legal form lawfully empowers an individual elected by the parents (called the Agent) to carry out tasks in their stead, such as those related to their child’s schooling, health, recreation activities, and any other areas specified in the form.
