Informal Probate

TOPICS - INFORMAL PROBATE
 
Despite it's name, Informal Probate can be a very complicated process.  That's why we strongly encourage you to speak with a Deputy Register in Probate in our office.  Please feel free to pay us a visit in our office, in Room 207 of the Milwaukee County Courthouse, Monday through Friday, from 8:00-4:30pm.

Linked directly below you will find a comprehensive guide to Informal Probate, as well as forms, available samples on how to fill the forms out, and checklists for the different procedures.
