California Revocation of Power of Attorney Form

The California Revocation of Power of Attorney (POA) is a document created by the Principal of a Power of Attorney who wishes for it to discontinue. It is strongly recommended that both parties familiarize themselves with the provisions found in Section 3 of the Powers of Attorney Act. This section, named the Modification and Revocation of Powers of Attorney, contains important information about the process of revoking a POA. Notably, it states that revoking a POA in writing is one of only two ways a POA may be legally revoked.
