North Carolina Guardian of Minor Power of Attorney Form

Updated June 07, 2023

A North Carolina guardian of minor power of attorney form can be used to convey decision-making power over a child’s welfare to another person. This type of appointment is commonly necessary the parents anticipate being away and generally unavailable to make decisions on behalf of their children. For instance, maybe the parents are planning a trip and anticipate being out-of-town while their children are home with relatives or friends. Once this document in place, it can help them effectively manage issues when they come up if you can’t be reached since it will act as proof that you, as the parent, has granted the agent the same authority you carry over the child’s welfare. Keep in mind, the level of authority the agent will carry will be determined by the principal (parent).
