502.68 CONSENTS MUST BE IN WRITING.

When the consent of the donor, or of any other person is required by the donor for the exercise of a power of appointment, this consent must be in writing. To entitle the instrument exercising the power to be recorded, the signature of any person consenting must be acknowledged; and, if the consent be given in a separate instrument, that instrument must be attached to the instrument exercising the power. If any person whose consent is required dies or becomes legally incapable of consenting, the donee may exercise the power with the consent of the other persons whose consent is required. If there be no such person, the donee may exercise the power in the manner provided by section 502.64, unless the donor has manifested a contrary intent in the instrument creating the power.
