Power of Attorney for Care of a Child

by | Dec 1, 2016

A client recently asked if she could place her child in someone’s care for several months while she worked on a mission without seeking Guardianship or some other form of Court protection for the child in case of an emergency.

Michigan law does provide a method for allowing someone else to care for your child in your place for up to six months without Court involvement.

Under a Power of Attorney for Care of a Child you can grant authority to a third person to care for your child.  This can include the right to secure any medical treatment and any other necessities of life for your child.  You can grant any of your rights as a parent to allow for the child’s care, custody, or property of your child except the power to consent to marriage or adoption.  This power can last for up to six months.

For more thorough information and advice our attorneys can assist you.
