Wyoming Power of Attorney Forms
A Wyoming power of attorney form is a type of legal document used for giving a person the right to complete tasks and/or make decisions in the name of another. It is drawn up by an individual known as the principal, who will assign power(s) to a person known as their “agent” to complete tasks on their behalf. The form is used by business professionals for the purpose of delegating, family members to assign a loved one with the right of making end-of-life decisions, and much more. Wyoming law requires all POAs to be notarized, regardless of their use.
