If the will was done in MI how can I get a copy of it since the executor refuses to let me see it.
State/Country relating to question: Florida
Thank you for your question. I appreciate your patience while I researched and typed out your answer.
The Will is supposed to be filed with the Clerk of Court in the county where the decedent lived following their passing. Once filed, it's public record, anyone can get a copy. I would start by calling the Clerk's office and seeing if they have it on file.
Alternatively, if you are a beneficary, you, like all beneficiaries, are entitled to a copy following the decedent's passing. If they won't provide a copy and the Clerk's office doesn't have the original on file, you'd have to petition the probate court to have the executor produce it.
If you require additional information, press "REPLY" and I will be happy to assist you further.
