A Wyoming durable power of attorney is a document wherein an individual can grant authority to an attorney-in-fact to oversee a portion or the entirety of their financial affairs. The durable POA is one that is still effective following the incapacity of the principal; that is, should the individual become mentally ill or physically disabled to such a degree that they can no longer communicate, the agent selected in the power of attorney document will be able to continue to manage their finances as per the instructions in the form. It is always recommended that the agent in question be a trusted individual that can act with the principal’s best interests in mind.
