Alaska Revocation of Power of Attorney Form
The Alaska Revocation of Power of Attorney is a simple one (1) page document that is used to terminate any previously-granted powers to an elected agent. In Alaska, a Power of Attorney may be terminated for any reason. To ensure the Power of Attorney is no longer in effect, the principal should send the completed revocation document to any individual or entity that originally received the power of attorney, as well as their attorney.
State Laws & Signing Requirements
Signing Requirements (AS 13.26.620): While the state permits any principal to revoke a Power of Attorney using a Revocation of POA form, there are no signing requirements mentioned. It is, however, in the principal’s best interest to sign the form before a Notary Public.
Notes on the Form: Although the document contains fields for two (2) witnesses and a Notary Public, it is important that the principal understands that these fields DO NOT need to be filled in as per Alaska law. However, if the principal already took the time to acquire two (2) witness’ signatures on the document, it does not make the revocation invalid.
The fields that are mandatory include the top half of the document above the witness’ signatures, as well as the principal’s signature.
