New Jersey Revocation of Power of Attorney Form
In accordance with § 46:2B-8.10, in the state of New Jersey, a Principal has two (2) options for revoking a Power of Attorney (POA):
- Physically destroying “all executed originals of the Power of Attorney” or
- Signing and acknowledging “a written instrument of revocation” or delivering the Attorney-in-Fact a written revocation (both of which can be achieved via a New Jersey Revocation of Power of Attorney).
The latter option is recommended over the former one as it allows the POA to be revoked in a more formal manner. Moreover, documenting the revocation using a New Jersey Revocation of POA allows for a paper trail to be created—which may come in use should the revocation need to be referenced at a future date.
