How do I remove a power of attorney (an attorney-in-fact)?

If you are a person who is entitled to obtain information from  an agent (an attorney-in-fact) and the agent fails or refuses to give that information to you, this is a basis for filing a complaint in circuit court to remove the agent.

In addition, if you are the principal, a close relative of the principal, someone entitled to make health care decisions for the principal, the principal’s caregiver, a guardian, conservator, representative of the estate of a deceased principal, a person who is asked to accept a power of attorney, or a beneficiary of a principal’s estate, then you may petition a circuit court to review the agent’s conduct and to grant appropriate relief.  If it be shown that the agent has breached his or her duties as attorney-in-fact, then the court may order the removal of the agent.
