Wisconsin Limited Power of Attorney Form
A Wisconsin limited power of attorney authorizes an agent to act for a principal while carrying out particular tasks. The form gives the representative the ability to complete tasks that the principal would otherwise be able to do if they were present. However, the agent must abide by the set rules and regulations. For instance, if the principal asks them to sign a bill of sale, the agent cannot sign a non-disclosure agreement in their place.
Creating a limited power of attorney can open doors for legal claims or disagreements. Furthermore, the principal loses some of their power by giving an agent authority. Therefore, when choosing an agent, the principal should consider the individuals in their life they know and trust. After deeply considering these matters, they should finally complete a limited power of attorney to elect the selected person.
