Are there special considerations for registered domestic partnerships in Wisconsin?

Wisconsin has special rules that may affect estate planning for registered domestic partners. For now, we'll provide you and your partner with separate trusts. However, application of Wisconsin’s marital property regime to registered domestic partners is complex. A joint trust may be a more appropriate trust for some registered partners under Wisconsin law, depending on their specific circumstances. If these circumstances apply to you, you may want to engage an estate planning attorney who can help you decide. Since Tomorrow is not a law firm and does not provide legal advice, some people use the Tomorrow app to generate documents and then hire an attorney to review them before signing.
