Louisiana Power of Attorney for Minor Child (Parental) Form

Updated June 07, 2023

A Louisiana power of attorney for minor child (parental) is a type of authority appointment allowing parents to appoint someone to have authority to make decisions (i.e. medical and education decisions) regarding their children when they are absent. This type of form can only be in place for a maximum of a year and would be considered helpful in instances where parents anticipate being away from their children for a specific period of time, such as military deployment or long-term hospitalization.
