justjo:
i was researching name changes and i discovered wi law requires publication once a week for 3 weeks before a court hearing

Jasmine.m:
You are correct. 

Wisconsin State Statue 786.37(1), states,

--- Quote ---(1) Before petitioning the court to change or establish a name, the petitioner shall publish a class 3 notice under ch. 985 stating the nature of the petition and when and where the petition will be heard.
--- End quote ---

This link provides much information:
