Wisconsin Power of Attorney Law


A power of attorney form (POA) is an important legal document for estate planning that’s simple and inexpensive to make. By filling out this vital form, you appoint an agent, also called an attorney-in-fact, who has the authority you describe to act with the same authority you would have if you handled the matter personally. Your agent can make decisions, sign papers, and act in your place, according to the power you choose to delegate. If you create a general durable power of attorney, you are giving your agent the broadest possible powers to handle your personal and business affairs when an unexpected event prevents you from managing your affairs. This can avoid the expense and delay of setting up a guardianship through the court if you have an accident, serious illness, or become mentally incompetent.

You can also create a limited power of attorney form to delegate authority to your agent to handle a certain act or transaction when you’re unavailable or prefer not to handle it yourself. This type of POA may be used for a vehicle or house sale, banking matters, or other act or transaction.

The Wisconsin Statutes govern the making, use, and termination of your POA. Some of the important factors to consider are described below:

  • Durable vs. nondurable – By stating in your form that it will be terminated by your future incapacity, you create a nondurable form. Otherwise, your form will be a durable form and won’t be terminated if you become incapacitated and can’t think, act, or communicate clearly. Wisconsin Statutes Section 244.04
 
  • Revocation and termination – Your form can be revoked at any time. You should give your agent, as well as those dealing with the agent acting on your behalf, a copy of a signed and dated revocation notice. Your form will also terminate at your death, when its purpose has been accomplished, or when the terms provide for its termination. If you revoke the agent’s authority or the agent resigns, dies, or becomes incapacitated, and you haven’t named a successor agent, the form will be terminated. The form will also terminate if you name your spouse as the agent and a dissolution or annulment action is filed or you legally separate. If your agent is your domestic partner and the partnership terminates, the form will likewise be terminated. Wisconsin Statutes Section 244.10
 
  • Medical power of attorney – You can give your agent authority to make decisions about and give your consent to medical treatment and life support. You can also create an advance health care directive in order to state your medical preferences and provide guidance for your health care agent to follow. Wisconsin Statutes Section 155.05, Wisconsin Statutes Section 154.03

    General and Statutory Power of AttorneyWhat is a General Power of Attorney?A General Power of Attorney is a legal document which gives the person you choose (the agent) the power to manage your assets and financial affairs while you are alive. The document must be signed by you (the principal) while you have the required legal capacity to give your agent clear and concise instructions. The appointment may be for a fixed period and can be revoked by you at any time providing you still have the legal capacity to do so. A power of attorney ceases when you die. The executor named in your will then takes over the responsibilities of your estate.

    Living Will and Health Care Power of AttorneyLiving Will and Health Care Power of AttorneyA Health Care Power of Attorney is a legal document that allows an individual to designate another person to make medical decisions for him or her when he or she cannot make decisions for himself or herself. In other words it names someone who stands in your shoes and tells the doctors what to do or what not do for you.

    A Living Will is a document that allows a person to explain in writing which medical treatment he or she does or does not want during a terminal illness. A terminal illness is a fatal illness that leads ultimately to death. A Living Will takes effect only when the patient is incapacitated and can no longer express his or her wishes. The will states which medical treatments may be used and which may not be used to die naturally and without the patient�s life being artificially prolonged by various medical procedures. Although the term Living Will may indicate that it is a Will, in reality, it is more similar to a Power of Attorney than a Will.
