Wyoming Minor Child Power of Attorney Form

Comprised of details about the child care duties an Agent, such as a grandparent or other trusted adult, will perform on their behalf, a Wyoming Minor Child Power of Attorney can be completed by parents or guardians who require temporary relief from one or more parental or guardianship responsibilities. This legal agreement allows parents or guardians to easily respond to a variety of situations that may arise at any time that would make taking care of their child/ren difficult, if not impossible. 


Additional Considerations
