Wyoming Revocation of Power of Attorney Form
Just like any capable individual (called the Principal) is legally permitted to execute a Power of Attorney, they are also able to retract it. The recommended means of doing so is by executing a Wyoming Revocation of Power of Attorney. This form basically states the Principal’s desire for both the Power of Attorney to terminate, and for the decision making powers they granted to their Agent to no longer be utilized. There is no need for the Principal to convince their Agent of why they believe this is a good idea. The Principal only needs to ensure they properly notify their Agent of their decision by furnishing them with a copy of the completed form.
State Laws & Signing Requirements
State Laws – Uniform Power of Attorney Act
Signing Requirements (§ 3-5-103): State law specifies that if the Power of Attorney that the Principal wishes to revoke was executed after the effective date of the Uniform Power of Attorney Act (i.e. January 1, 2018), it can be revoked, “by recording an instrument of revocation with a true copy of the power of attorney attached, in the office of the county clerk of the county in which the Principal resides.” That is, it can be revoked by first executing this form and attaching a copy of the Power of Attorney to it, and subsequently providing it to the office of the county clerk where the Principal lives. The exception to this is if the Power of Attorney specifies terms to the contrary.
