Avoiding Probate

Dying without a will also means that your family will not have to go through the probate process. Many see this as an advantage of not having a will. Indeed, probate can be costly and time consuming. However, probate does provide for the orderly administration of your estate, which is advantageous to those who own a business. In addition, probate reform has led to an informal probate process that is much less costly and time consuming than before. Judicial oversight is much less for the informal process. Finally, Wisconsin's small estate law permits persons whose estate is less than $50,000 to avoid probate altogether.
