Question & AnswerCan I change or cancel my Power of Attorney for Personal Care?
2. Put in writing that you want to cancel your Power of Attorney
Here are 3 ways to cancel or a :
- Use CLEO's Power of Attorney Guided Pathway. This is a free online interview that helps you to revoke your Power of Attorney.
- Make a written statement, which is called a “revocation” or a Notice of Revocation. There's no special form that you have to use. All you need to do is write “I revoke my Power of Attorney for Personal Care, dated [month, day, year] and effective immediately.”
- Use a lawyer. This will cost more but the lawyer will make sure that what you do follows the law.
You can also cancel or revoke a Power of Attorney by making a new Power of Attorney for Personal Care. If you make a new one, all of your other Powers of Attorney for Personal Care are cancelled.
