Revocation of Powers of Attorney

Our Los Angeles Attorney Can Help!

There are many reasons that can cause you to become unpleased with the individual you chose to make decisions for you for the durable power of attorney. If you need to put an end to this situation, it is important to know that you can revoke the power of attorney at any time. By speaking with a Los Angeles lawyer from our firm, our attorney can help you through the steps to ensure the document is completely revoked. This can be done by making a new power of attorney, but the revocation should also be done in a written form.

What does a revocation include?

If you are putting the revocation in writing, it should include the proper information. This includes your name, a statement to prove that you are in fact of sound mind, and a statement that you wish to revoke the current power of attorney. The date that the original power of attorney begun and the individual chosen as the agent or attorney-in-fact should also be included. You will then need to ensure that the document is signed and sent to your current agent and anyone who has a copy of your current power of attorney. If you have a new power of attorney, that should also be included.

Another step that should be taken is to get the old power of attorney back from your agent. If that is not feasible, then you should send that individual a certified letter that states the revocation of the power of attorney of which they are the agent. This can be a complicated process that requires substantial legal assistance. As you withdraw the powers to make financial or health care decisions from one agent and give this power to another agent, a Los Angeles trust attorney from our firm can help.
