When you need to revoke a power of attorney, a revocation of power of attorney document allows you to end any previous authority you may have designated.

Type of Power of Attorney

LegalNature's revocation of power of attorney allows you to revoke two different types of powers of attorney—durable or general—depending on your needs. A durable power of attorney is a power of attorney that gives your attorney-in-fact (also called your agent, proxy, or surrogate) the authority to act on your behalf after you become incapacitated and can no longer speak for yourself. A general power of attorney, also known as an ordinary power of attorney, is a power of attorney that ends when you become incapacitated. A general power of attorney is typically granted for a specific purpose or event.

Executing Your Revocation

Once the document has been completed, you should sign the revocation in the presence of two witnesses and a notary. The two witnesses should then sign the revocation confirming that they have witnessed your signature. Finally, the notary should acknowledge the signatures in the space provided. Once you have a completed, signed, and notarized document, a copy should be provided to all attorneys-in-fact whose powers are being revoked. Copies should also be sent to any organization that knew about or acted upon the power of attorney document.

Note: You do not need to provide a reason to your former attorney-in-fact or any organization as to why you are revoking the power of attorney.
