Are wills registered in Minnesota prior to death and how do I find out the most recent date of the will without going to the attorney. I have been told one thing and it does not feel right so I want to verify that the document I have been shown is the most recent
Welcome. This site allows for a general response that will help you with your legal issue. If necessary, for specific advice contact a local attorney. I am happy to help. If you need further clarification, hit reply and ask a follow up question before rating. In Minnesota, the probate court or court administrator’s office will accept wills for safekeeping. So check the local probate court, a will may be on file for you to review. If there is a will on file, you can check against the copy of the will you have to compare the dates. This information is informative and helpful. If you need clarification, hit reply and let me know before providing a rating. Otherwise, please provide a positive rating so I can get credit for helping you. Thank you.
