POA for minors at St Lukes

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Three of my kids will have their physicals at SLMC in September. The oldest is 21 and hasn't aged out because I filed her paperwork before she turned 21. Since my wife and I are in the states they will have a chaperone for their visits to Manila but I'm not sure who that will be. My 2 kids under 18 will need to have a companion with special POA or authorization letter from petitioner (me) to accompany them and be able to sign and have knowledge of the medical history. I have several questions:

1) Can I use my 21 yo daughter, who is also having her physical at the same time, as their companion and give her power of attorney?

2) Since my wife is their mother and I'm a step dad, and petitioner, should the POA be from both of us?

3) Will just a standard POA form, found on Phils Embassy website, be ok to fill out and have notarized?

I was going to put on the POA that my wife and I authorize my daughter as their companion on all travel pertaining to their visa process and for the visit to SLMC and their interview at the US Embassy.

Any input on this matter would be greatly appreciated. Thanx.

Don

Your wife's daughter should be just fine, she is of legal age. Only your wife is the actual parent so only she needs to execute the POA. You may want to check with the Philippine consulate for your area regarding the requirements for the POA in the Philippines.

Also you will need the POA to cover travel as well.
