Indiana Power of Attorney For Minor Child Form

Updated August 11, 2023

An Indiana power of attorney for minor child is a document that allows one person to appoint another to make medical and educational decisions on behalf of their children for up to twelve (12) months. If someone plans to be away for an extended time or they anticipate a long recuperation from an illness and need to know that someone is caring for their children, this may be a useful form to have in place.
