Wisconsin Revocation of Power of Attorney Form
A Principal should recognize when it is in their best interests to revoke a Power of Attorney using a Wisconsin Revocation of Power of Attorney. Telltale signs that the time is right to do so include, but are not limited to when:
- The circumstances the Power of Attorney addresses are no longer relevant,
- Their Agent has effectively fulfilled the duties detailed in the Power of Attorney, and
- Their Agent has failed to adequately fulfill their obligations.
If one or more of the signs mentioned above have presented themselves to the Principal—or if the they have any other reason for wanting to terminate the Power of Attorney—they always have the option to revoke it by filling out a Revocation of Power of Attorney Form and providing their Agent with a copy of it.

Signing Requirements (§ 244.10) – The state of Wisconsin is silent about signing requirements for a Revocation of Power of Attorney to be lawfully executed. Nevertheless, it is in the Principal’s best interests to organize for a Notary Public to acknowledge their signature, and to have two (2) witnesses present at the time of signing.
