Nevada Minor Child Power of Attorney Form
In circumstances where a parent or guardian has one or many personal or business events that conflict with their ability to carry out their duty of care to their child/ren, parents are legally obligated to organize alternative arrangements. Once the parent or guardian has decided who will take care of their child/ren in their absence, they should record this arrangement in a Nevada Minor Child Power of Attorney Form. Doing so will allow them to, as the “Principal” of the Power of Attorney, set out certain legal guidelines and boundaries for this party to act. Known as the “Agent,” the person they nominate will be granted certain decision making powers so they can attend to any duties listed in the form.
