Pursuant to Wisconsin State Statute, Section 856.05, the original Will for every deceased person must be filed with the Register in Probate within 30 days of death. A receipt will be provided if the original Will is dropped off in person, or if mailed, a self-addressed stamped envelope must be provided before a receipt will be returned.

If a probate proceeding is required, you may file the original Will at the same time that you file the initial documents to open the administration.
