Wisconsin Power of Attorney basics

A necessary part of preparing for the future is thinking about what would happen if you weren't able to pay your bills or communicate your healthcare wishes due to an unexpected illness or accident. Someone else, ideally someone you trust, would need to make those decisions or take care of your affairs for you. A Wisconsin Power of Attorney is the legal document you can use to name that trusted person and empower them with the authority to act or make decisions on your behalf.

Does a Power of Attorney need to be notarized in Wisconsin?

Wisconsin statutes do not explicitly require a Power of Attorney to be notarized, however, it does mention that any signature acknowledged before a notary public is presumed to be genuine. Therefore, it is highly recommended that you notarize your Wisconsin Power of Attorney.

Where do I send a Power of Attorney in Wisconsin?

After having your Power of Attorney document signed by two witnesses and notarized, you should provide a signed copy for anyone named in the document.

How do I get Financial Power of Attorney?

Making a Wisconsin Power of Attorney is relatively simple and can be done using the Rocket Lawyer document builder. After you answer a series of questions to customize your document, Rocket Lawyer will build it for you. Considering the following questions will help you to prepare to make your own document:

  • Who will you designate as your Agent, Co-Agent, and Successor Agent?
  • Would you like to grant your Agent broad or specific powers?
  • Will your Agent have authority over any of your finances, assets, businesses, trusts, or real estate?
  • Will your Agent be compensated?

Once you start your document, it can be saved and completed later.

How do I activate my Healthcare Power of Attorney?

Your Wisconsin Healthcare Power of Attorney is a "durable" power of attorney. Under a "durable" power of attorney document, an Agent's authority to act on your behalf generally becomes effective upon your disability or mental incompetence, and continues during such period of disability or mental incompetence.
