Alabama Parental (Minor Children) Power of Attorney Form

Updated June 05, 2023

An Alabama Parental (Minor Children) Power of Attorney Form is a document that lets a parent choose someone else to handle the everyday care, responsibility, and decision-making ability for a dependent child, for a period of one (1) year. It must be recorded in the office of a probate Judge (See List of Offices). The cost of recording in most offices is around $10 but it is best to check for the exact amount. The responsibility of the child may be renewed at the end of the one (1) year period.

How to Write

1 – Download the Alabama Power of Attorney {Delegation of Powers By Parent(s)}

Locate the buttons labeled “PDF” and “Word,” below the image on the right, then select the button labeled with the file format you wish to use to enter information onto the form.

2 – Name the Parent(s) and Child(ren)

Begin filling in the form by entering the father’s and mother’s names.

Report the name of the minor child. The age of the child must be written with his or her birth date.

This should be followed by the delegate’s name and address.

3 – Specify Authority

The most important area of the form is the parent should describe the powers the delegate shall have over the child. Define this information using the blank lines following the words “…of consent over said child.”

4 – Notarize the Signature

The mother and father will need to sign the document in front of a notary public. This Signature must be Dated following the term “In Witness Whereof.” There will be a Signature Line for the Mother, for the Father, and an area designated for the “Notary Public.” Once this is complete the form will need to be recorded with the office of the Probate Judge (See List) and the form is valid for a period of one (1) year.

Note: This form must be filled in for each child that will be represented by the delegate.
