Create a high quality document online now!

Updated June 02, 2022

An Oklahoma minor child (parental) power of attorney form is a legal document that a parent may use to appoint another person to care for their child(ren). This paperwork will go into effect when the parent(s) are not unavailable and expect the agent to care for the concerned child(ren). The principal or parent will be able to use this document to deliver his or her full and/or specified permission for a temporary caregiver to make decisions for the children using the same authority the parent carries. This form may be revoked at any time in writing to the attorney in fact and the parent(s) may then resume full responsibility for their child(ren). Otherwise, the document is in force for up to one year. If more time will be required, a new document must be executed prior to the expiration date of the original.
