Virginia Revocation of Power of Attorney Form
Offering Principals a legal avenue to terminate a Power of Attorney they are party to, the Virginia Revocation of Power of Attorney is a document that upholds state law requirements that must be met in order to revoke a Power of Attorney (POA). In plain language, state law demands that a Principal must inform their Agent of their intention to revoke a POA in order for the revocation to be put into effect. That means that in addition to completing this form, the Principal is responsible for furnishing a copy of it to their Agent.
