Utah Guardian of Minor Power of Attorney Form

Updated June 07, 2023

A Utah Guardian of Minor Power of Attorney Form is a legal document utilized by parents in the state of Utah to temporarily grant specific powers to a trusted friend or relative to properly care for their child. The parental authority given to the agent here will only have a lifespan of six months. Thus, if more time is required, the principal (i.e. parent or court-appointed guardian) will have to issue additional paperwork so the agent will be able to represent his or her interests in taking care of the concerned child/minor. If any portion of this document will require added room, continue the information on a separate sheet that may be attached to the document. This document may be revoked at any time by simply issuing a written revocation to all relevant entities.
