Mississippi Revocation of Power of Attorney Form
The Mississippi Revocation of Power of Attorney is a document that will lawfully retract an active Power of Attorney. The only person who may execute this form is the Principal to a given Power of Attorney, who has the right to file it at any time. There are numerous reasons they may decide to do so, of which do not matter in a legal sense. What does matter, however, is that the Principal executes it in a conscious state, of their own volition. Another important consideration to keep in mind is that the signing requirements differ between a revocation of an Advance Health-Care Directive and other types of Power of Attorney.
