This individual does not to be an actual attorney, but the individual selected should be someone you trust and have known for a long time.

- This form does not cancel if the principal should become incapacitated or not able to think or make decisions for themselves
You can cancel your Financial Power of Attorney at any time with a revocation form while you are still competent. If, as is often the case, you choose your spouse as your Attorney-In-Fact, note that in Tennessee, the agreement doesn’t end automatically upon divorce. Upon authorization in front of a notary public or two (2) witnesses will this form be legal for use.
