Wisconsin Limited (Special) Power of Attorney Form

An individual wishing to gauge if a Wisconsin Limited (Special) Power of Attorney will be the most ideal type of Power of Attorney (POA) for their circumstances, should consider the following questions:

  • Do I want the POA to feature specific conditions for the Agent to abide by?
  • Do I want the Agent’s powers to be limited instead of broad?
  • Do I want to only authorize the Agent to only act in unique circumstances?

If they answered “yes” to one or more, this POA will likely serve their needs well.


Additional Considerations

If an individual answered “no” to one or more questions, they may wish to select another type of Power of Attorney. The Wisconsin Power of Attorney hub page features various types of Power of Attorney available in the state of Wisconsin.
