A: Absolutely, in Michigan and many other jurisdictions, you can certainly create a Power of Attorney (POA) revocation letter in advance and retain it for potential future use. This proactive approach allows you to be prepared should you ever need to revoke a previously granted power of attorney. Your revocation letter should be clear and specific, mentioning the individual's name who was granted the power, the original POA date, and your identifying information. To ensure its effectiveness, it's important to deliver a copy of the revocation letter to the person with the original POA and any relevant parties who might have relied on it.
