if i write on paper my wishes when when i die and have it noterized will it be good , like a will .
Thank you for your question. I appreciate your patience while I researched and typed out your answer.
A holographic Will, or one handwritten by a person and signed is not recognized in Wisconsin, as it doesn't comply with statutory requirements. Aside from that, Wills generally use specific terms and it is possible if you just were to write something out and sign it, your wishes would be misconstrued.
You can have a simple Will drafted on your computer using a site like www.legalzoom.com or www.rocketlawyer.com. It must be witnessed by two people who are not beneficiaries to be valid under Wisconsin law.
If you require additional information, press "REPLY" and I will be happy to assist you further.
