Universal Citation: WI Stat § 54.896 (2018)

54.896 Effect on existing custodianships.

(1) Any transfer of custodial property as defined in ss. 54.854 to 54.898 made before April 8, 1988, is validated notwithstanding that there was no specific authority in ss. 880.61 to 880.71, 1985 stats., for the coverage of custodial property of that kind or for a transfer from that source at the time the transfer was made.

(2) Sections 54.854 to 54.898 apply to all transfers made before April 8, 1988, in a manner and form prescribed in ss. 880.61 to 880.71, 1985 stats., except insofar as the application impairs constitutionally vested rights or extends the duration of custodianships in existence on April 8, 1988.

(3) Sections 54.854 to 54.892 with respect to the age of a minor for whom custodial property is held under ss. 54.854 to 54.898 do not apply to custodial property held in a custodianship that terminated because of the minor's attainment of the age of 18 after March 23, 1972 and before April 8, 1988.

(4) To the extent that ss. 54.854 to 54.898, by virtue of sub. (2), do not apply to transfers made in a manner prescribed in ss. 880.61 to 880.71, 1985 stats., or to the powers, duties and immunities conferred by transfers in that manner upon custodians and persons dealing with custodians, the repeal of ss. 880.61 to 880.71, 1985 stats., does not affect those transfers, powers, duties and immunities.
