Do I Really Need a Will in Wisconsin?
You are not required to have a will in Wisconsin, but having a will is a good idea for most people. A will can provide peace of mind to your loved ones because it is an opportunity to tell them your wishes for your assets and care for your minor children.
If you create a trust, it is still wise to also have a will. A will can act as a safeguard for items you forgot to put into the trust and for life insurance policies with defective beneficiary designations.
If you die without a will, Wisconsin's intestacy laws will determine who receives assets that are owned solely by you. The intestacy laws provide for a spouse or domestic partner and your children first. If you do not have a spouse, domestic partner, or children, then the court will move on to increasingly distant relatives until it finds relatives who can inherit from you. In rare cases, the deceased person's property will pass to the state if no living relatives are located.
