Powers of Attorney & Health Care Directives

Power of Attorney for care of a child

A parent may choose to delegate his or her parental rights to another person for up to one year. This is often called a Delegation of Powers by Parent or Guardian. It can be revoked by the parents or guardians at any time for any reason, AS 13.26.020. You can fill out Delegation of Powers by Parent or Guardian, PG-700 Adobe Acrobat PDF logo. You do not file this form in court, but instead provide it to the person to whom you are delegating powers and keep a copy for yourself.
