Maine Power of Attorney for Minor Child (Parent) Form

Updated June 07, 2023

A Maine power of attorney for minor child (parent) is used by parents when they anticipate being away or temporarily unable to take care of their child or children, such as in the event of a long-term illness or military deployment. This form can be used for up to 12 months and allows your agent to make decisions such as a medical and educational decision on behalf of your child.

How to Write

1 – The Power Form Required For Guardianship Should Be Opened Here

The required template form may be obtained with the buttons “PDF,” “ODT,” and “Word.” Select any of these to open then save this template form.

2 – The First Paragraph Must Have Some Vital Information Supplied

Find the bold words “Know All Persons,” then on the first blank line after this term, enter the Full Name of the Parent or current Legal Guardian issuing this form. To fully describe this individual, use the second blank line (just before the word “…,Maine”) to record his or her Complete City Address of Residence. After the words “…, Maine, appoint,” record the Name of the individual who will become the Legal Guardian of the Minor(s) this form is focused upon. Make sure to use the next blank space to enter the Complete Address of the individual who will become the Minor’s Guardian. The last set of lines in this initial paragraph will require that each Minor who will be designated under the Guardian’s care be listed. There will be enough room for three Minor(s) to be recorded. Report the Name of one Minor before the words “Born on,” then report the Birth Date of that Minor on the same line.3 – The Rest Of this Form Will Round Out This Delegation Of Guardianship

Find the second paragraph beginning with the words “I hereby grant…” the blank line in this paragraph will require the new Guardian’s Name as it was reported in the first paragraph (after the word “appoint”). The last paragraph, beginning with the words “The rights, power, and authority…” will also need some information. First, on the blank space after the term “…effect until,” enter the Calendar Date when this form will no longer be effective. This will be considered the last day the new Guardian will have Principal Authority. The second blank space in this paragraph will require the Name of the new Guardian as it was recorded earlier.

The Parent or Legal Guardian issuing this Authority must enter the Date he or she is signing it in the last statement. Below this, the Parent or Guardian must sign his or her Name on the “Signature” line.
