Montana Revocation of Power of Attorney Form
State law, specifically § 72-31-310, provides for a number of circumstances in which a Power of Attorney (POA) may be terminated. The Montana Revocation of Power of Attorney is a legally-binding document that allows for a POA to be revoked by a Principal by effectively addressing two of these circumstances. Namely, it makes it possible for the Principal to revoke the POA and/or for the Principal wholly revokes the Agent’s authority. The other circumstances that will lead to the termination of a POA may be referred to in the section below.
As mentioned above, there are six circumstances in which state law allows for a Power of Attorney to be terminated. In addition to the ones that a Revocation of Power of Attorney covers, the other circumstances are as follows:
- The Principal dies,
- The Principal either becomes incapacitated and the POA is not durable,
- The POA provides that it terminates,
- The purpose of the POA is accomplished, and/or
- The agent dies, becomes incapacitated, or resigns and the POA does not provide for another Agent to act under the POA.
