Wisconsin Durable Power of Attorney Form

1 Star2 Stars3 Stars4 Stars5 Stars (No Ratings Yet)

The Wisconsin Durable Power of Attorney Form is used when the Principal needs their Agent to retain their Power of Attorney, even if the Principal is incapacitated. There are a variety of reasons why an Agent might be declared incapacitated, but the salient reasons would be that the Principal is either incapable of making their own decisions or are unable to communicate their wishes.

Note that in Wisconsin, regardless of how durable it is, if the Principal gets a divorce, any Power of Attorney agreement they have signed naming their former spouse as the Agent will automatically be terminated. If the Principal wishes their former Spouse to retain their powers then they will need to draft and sign a new agreement, although revoking an agreement made with a former spouse is generally recommended.
