Probate Duration in Wisconsin

Posted by Lanre J. Abiola | Jan 06, 2024

Probate is the legal process of transferring the property from a deceased person's estate to their heirs or beneficiaries. Additionally, probate is required in Wisconsin for any estate, without a trust, that exceeds $50,000. Probate is overseen by the local probate court. 

Additionally, Wisconsin wants an estate to be probated within 18 months after the decedent's death but it does vary by county. Some counties in Wisconsin want the estate to be probated within a year. Once the Will and petition are filed, creditors have a three month window where they can file claims against the estate.  

Therefore, in Wisconsin, an estate can be settled within the probate court system between six and 18 months, depending on the complexity of the probate.
