Illinois Revocation of Power of Attorney
The Illinois Revocation of Power of Attorney is a form that serves one primary purpose: to terminate a currently active Power of Attorney (POA). As the law 755 ILCS 45/2-5 stipulates, “Every agency may be amended or revoked by the principal, if the principal has the capacity to do so, at any time and in any manner communicated to the agent or to any other person related to the subject matter of the agency.” As the act of revoking a POA is legally-binding (likewise to executing it), it is strongly advised that this document provided is used to ensure legal compliance and minimize miscommunication between the parties involved.
