Reasons to do a Will in Wisconsin
The question often gets asked – what if I die without a will – what will happen to my assets? Well, if you die in Wisconsin without a will any assets titled in your name when you die will go through what is called probate and will be distributed according to Wisconsin’s intestacy statute. If you have a surviving spouse the assets go to him/her (as long as all of your children are also his/her children). If you have no surviving spouse your assets will go to your children. If you do not have any children the assets will go to your siblings, if any… and so forth down the list.
