Wyoming Power of Attorney Forms can be used to delegate the authority one person uses to represent another. Such a delegation of power will enable a selected agent to represent the principal who issued the appointment by making and acting upon decisions the principal would normally be expected to make on that principal’s behalf. The authority to act in such a way with someone else’s affairs is only considered valid through the approval of that person and when it is provable. This set of forms will serve both functions. Naturally, an individual can have many responsibilities and quite a few of them will involve outside entities. Thus, for an agent to represent a principal certain language that has been approved by the principal must be in the agent’s possession. Different situations and topics will require a formal appointment to be made that may differ from one another. For example, to grant the power to represent a principal taxpayer during an audit will require a different set of principal approved directives than when granting the power to represent an incapacitated principal when a medical facility needs a decision on life-saving treatments. Both appointments of power will require different language to be employed to achieve the purpose. Once, the principal has decided upon the agent’s identity, the extent of power that should be granted, and when such representation should be valid, he or she will need to fill out and issue the appropriate form to the agent and other relevant entities. It should be noted that in some cases, additional approval from an outside entity. For instance, the tax entity a principal wishes the agent to represent his or her interests with will need to approve of the principal’s choice before the agent can be depended upon to act on the principal’s behalf.

Types


Durable 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.


General Power of Attorney – This form is similarly for appointing a representative to make determinations regarding your assets and property. However, this type automatically terminates if you, as the person who created it, becomes unable to make your own decisions.


Limited Power of Attorney – This type can be tailored to reflect your needs and circumstances. It is used when you have a specific event or transaction for which you need representation.


Medical Power of Attorney – A medical POA is useful in situations where you are unable to convey your health care wishes to your medical providers, such as an accident or surgery. You can tell your agent ahead of time what types of treatment you would prefer if the need arises and then your representative can convey those wishes to your doctor under a legally executed medical POA.
