Power of Attorney and Health Care – General – New Mexico
A parent or a guardian of a minor or ward, by an acknowledged power of attorney, may delegate to another person, for a period not exceeding six months, any of his powers regarding care, custody or property of the minor child or ward, except his power to consent to marriage or adoption of a minor ward.
A revocation of a power of attorney terminates the authority of the attorney-in-fact/agent to make decisions concerning the child/children. The parent granting the power of attorney can withdraw (revoke) the power at any time, even before the expiration date of the power of attorney. It is best that the withdrawal be in writing. The parent withdrawing the power must be sure to fill out a revocation form and deliver it to the person granted the power of attorney. The withdrawal is effective immediately upon delivery.
