Wisconsin Statutory Durable Power of Attorney Form

A Wisconsin statutory durable power of attorney is a legal document that, once executed, grants authority to an agent (a.k.a., attorney-in-fact) to represent the principal signatory in the management of their finances. The individual executing the document may allow for a broad scope of power or may limit the agent to a few specific tasks. A durable power of attorney, unlike a general power of attorney, persists beyond the point of the principal’s incapacitation.
