Wyoming power of attorney forms are legal documents that allow an individual to choose a person or organization to act on their behalf for medical, financial, or guardianship purposes.

The individual or “principle” who is giving authority chooses an “agent” to represent them by designating them on a power of attorney form for Wyoming, specifically, as each state has different form requirements.

Power of attorney in Wyoming can be durable, general, limited, medical, or for minors. Although some jurisdictions allow oral power of attorney agreements, most require written documents.

Wyoming Durable Power of Attorney

A durable power of attorney (DPOA) form lets you (the principal) appoint an agent to act on your behalf for legal matters. A DPOA will stay in effect even if you become incapacitated. It cannot be withdrawn unless you, the principal, revokes it or passes away.

Wyoming General Power of Attorney

This form allows you to appoint an agent to represent you in legal affairs. Unlike the durable power of attorney, a general power of attorney automatically ends if the person who created it (the principal) loses their mental capacities. If you are unable to make your own decisions, the general power of attorney becomes void. 

Wyoming Limited Power of Attorney

If you have a specific event that requires representation, you can customize a limited power of attorney to fit your needs. With a limited power of attorney, the principal gives the agent authority on specific matters and under particular circumstances.

Wyoming Medical Power of Attorney

In the event of an accident or during surgery, you may not be able to communicate your wishes to your medical providers. A medical power of attorney allows the principal to layout their medical treatment preferences to their healthcare providers in case of an emergency.

Wyoming Minor (Child) Power of Attorney

This form appoints an individual to act as a child’s guardian and representative. The appointed guardian, or agent, will take care of the minor’s day-to-day needs.

Frequently Asked Questions

To get Wyoming power of attorney, you need all of the following:

  • The principal (or individual who is giving their authority away)
  • An agent (the person who will act with the principal’s authority)
  • Appropriate power of attorney document signed by the principal, the agent, and an authorized officer of the law, or a notary public

The individual who gave authority to an agent to act on their behalf can revoke that authority at any time under Wyoming state law. To do so, they must fill out a Wyoming Revocation of Power of Attorney form. The form principal and a notary public both must sign the revocation.

Wyoming will presume a POA document is genuine as long as the principal’s signature is notarized, so you’ll need a notary public.

Wyoming even accepts electronically signed and notarized documents. The notary public simply must ensure that the principal is assigning power of attorney to the agent in full consciousness.
