Wisconsin - Legal Resources
No one enjoys writing a will, but once it is done, the resulting peace of mind is worth the effort to your loved one. Writing a will is extremely important for any senior because it ensures their property will be distributed as they please and their surviving family members will be protected from losing any important heirlooms after their death.
What Happens If One Dies Without A Will?
As in many other states, in the state of Wisconsin, the estate of a person who dies without a will is subject to state intestate laws. Intestate laws are essentially a set of distribution schemes that the state has set forth to decide how property is disseminated to surviving family members. Although the plans take relations into account, they give no preference to quality of the relationships your loved one had with each person. The only way to truly ensure that those who are actually close to a senior will be taken care of is to write a will.
