Create a high quality document online now!

Wyoming power of attorney forms are for individuals seeking to represented by someone of their choice for their financial or medical affairs. The person giving power (“principal”) has the choice to select any person (“agent”) they want to handle their affairs. If the form is “durable”, then the form will remain valid for use even if the principal should become incapacitated. After the form has been signed in accordance with State law, the agent will begin acting on behalf of the principal. No government filing or recording required.

Types (9)


Durable (Statutory) Power of Attorney – You may use this form to appoint another to make decisions regarding your assets and property. The appointment will last until you either revoke it or pass away. It is called “durable” because your incapacity will not void it.
