Wyoming General (Financial) Power of Attorney Form
If a person who intends to execute a Power of Attorney (a party known as the Principal) wants their chosen Agent to stop acting in their stead if they should one day become disabled or incapacitated, it is necessary for them to include particular terms regarding this in the Power of Attorney. The name given to this type of contract in the state of Wyoming is a Wyoming General (Financial) Power of Attorney. As the form provided here exemplifies, the form must explicitly state that the Agent is required to follow this request. If these terms are not included, the Agent will not be legally-bound to follow through on them.
