Oregon Guardian of Minor Power of Attorney Form

Updated June 07, 2023

An Oregon guardian of minor power of attorney form is a form that parents can use to designate an individual as the temporary guardian/caretaker of their children. This delegation of authority may only remain in effect for a maximum of six months. This life span is governed by the State of Oregon, thus an extended appointment is required to safeguard the child’s well-being, then an additional grant of power must be issued. When this paperwork is finalized, it will allow the caretaker to handle matters involving the children such as with the child’s doctor or with the child’s school while the parents are unavailable. Once this appointment is active the parent may rely on it to inform other parties of his or her approval for the caretaker’s actions, however, the parent will retain the right to terminate or revoke such approval at any time.
