How to revoke a supportive attorney appointment
You can revoke (cancel) the appointment at any time so long as you have the decision making capacity to do so.
You need to complete a Revocation of appointment form to cancel the appointment, and sign the form in the presence of one witness.
The witness can’t be a supportive attorney; a relative of the principal or supportive attorney; a care worker or accommodation provider of the principal; or the person who is signing the form on behalf of the principal.
If you are unable to physically sign the form, you can direct someone else to sign on your behalf in their presence, and in the presence of the witness. The person who signs on your behalf must be 18 years of age or older, not the witness, and not a supportive attorney. The witness needs to be authorised to witness statutory declarations.
See the Department of Justice and Community Safety website for a list of who can witness statutory declarations.
If you revoke (cancel) the appointment, the law says you need to take reasonable steps to inform your supportive attorney(s) that the appointment has been revoked. However, even if you do not do this the appointment is still cancelled.
