Colorado Revocation of Power of Attorney Form

A Principal who wishes to terminate an active Power of Attorney should execute a Colorado Revocation of Power of Attorney (POA). While some POA forms specify the circumstances in which it will terminate, if the Principal does not wish to wait for such circumstances to transpire, they can end the POA at any time by filing this form. Another situation this form may be employed is to revoke a POA previously executed by the Principal. This is notable because as § 15-14-710 states, the execution of a new POA does not revoke a previously executed POA.

State Laws & Signing Requirements

State Laws – Uniform Power of Attorney Act

Signing Requirements (§ 15-14-705) – No state-mandated signing requirements exist for a Colorado Revocation of Power of Attorney to be executed in a valid manner. Nevertheless, the Principal will best protect their interests by signing the form in the view of a Notary Public or other individual authorized by law to take acknowledgments.
