Mississippi Minor Child Power of Attorney Form
The Mississippi Minor Child Power of Attorney is a document that covers arrangements pertaining to the delegation of either parental or guardianship duties from a parent or guardian to another party, referred to as the Agent. Given the substantial responsibilities the Agent must uphold—namely, ensuring the care, safety, and wellbeing of the parent or guardian’s child/ren—selecting the right Agent is of paramount importance. A trusted family friend, grandparent, or other family member may be ideal choices.
