Idaho Minor Child (Parental) Power of Attorney Form

Updated June 06, 2023

An Idaho minor child (parental) power of attorney provides a legal way for a parent of a minor to allow a grandparent, aunt, uncle, or sibling of the child to act as the child’s guardian for a period of up to six (6) months, twelve (12) months for military, or three (3) years. It can be useful to grant someone else the authority to make decisions on behalf of your child if you anticipate being away for a period of time for a military deployment, vacation, or hospitalization. Make sure you are clear with this agent on the parameters of his or her behavior to avoid any misunderstanding.

How to Write

1 – Open And Review The Form

Open this form using the button below the form image, then peruse through it. Generally, it is a good idea to review a form before filling it out. Make sure you have all the required information as this form must be accurate before it is signed.

2 –  Report The Identities Of The Current Guardian, Minor, And Intended Guardian

The Full Name of the current Guardian or the Parent of the concerned Minor should be entered on the first blank line of this form.
The Full Name of each Minor and his or her Birth Date should be entered on the blank space before the word “born” and after the word “born” (respectively).

Locate the phrase “…Idaho Code Section 15-5-104, delegates…” then enter the Full Name of the individual who will assume Guardianship over the Minor through this form.

Utilize the blank line after the word “(current address)” to enter the Complete Address of the intended Guardian.

The next part of this sentence will require one of the three boxes be selected to define the relationship between the intended Guardian and the Minor. You may mark the box labeled “grandparent,” “sibling of a parent,” or “sibling of the above minor child/ren” to define this relationship.

3 – Specify Some Necessary Terms

The next statement will either allow or forbid the intended Guardian from traveling outside the United States with the Minor/Child. If the intended Guardian will be allowed to do this, then mark the box labeled “Yes.” If not, then mark the box labeled “No.”

If the intended current Guardian or Parent intends the Guardian Power being granted to the Agent or intended Guardian to be in effect for six months (unless it is revoked), then he or she must mark the first checkbox in the statement beginning with the word “This power of attorney shall remain.” If the Guardian Authority defined in this document should remain in effect until a specific Date or Event, then mark the second checkbox and report either the Date or Event that shall automatically terminate the intended Guardian’s Authority.

4 – Furnish Proof Of The Current Guardian Or Parent’s Authorization Of This Appointment

The current Guardian or Parent issuing this Authority should sign his or her Name on the blank line “Signature of Parent or Guardian.”

If the Principal Guardian or Parent has decided to Notarize this document, the Notary Public obtained for this signing will be able to Notarize this document in the “Optional Notarization” section.
