Parental Delegations | Boulder Estate Planning Lawyer
As a Boulder estate planning lawyer James Newell routinely helps clients with parental delegations of power. A parental delegation of power is a special power of attorney granted by a parent or guardian to someone else for a stated period of time. It grants the agent the authority to take actions on behalf of the principal’s minor child, including decisions concerning the child’s medical and dental care. Parental delegations of power can be useful tools even when the period of time in which the parent is leaving their child is short (as short as several hours to as long as several months).
These special powers of attorney are often used to ensure that a babysitter has the power to take a child to the emergency room if there’s an accident while the parents are away. As with any legal document, it is important to know how it works and the potential legal consequences.
