What Is Intestacy?
Intestacy is one of those estate planning words that people know they have heard before, but cannot really give a definition when asked. Simply put, intestacy means you have died without a will. As a result, state statute will control the disposition of your probate property (property that does not have a beneficiary form). The rules for distribution in Wisconsin are visually displayed in this chart. Some people are fine with the State's assumptions, some are fine up to a certain point, and others disagree completely. Take control of the situation by doing a will, avoid the intestate estate.
