Good morning. I am Loren, a licensed attorney, and I look forward to assisting you. My condolences for your loss.
If a will is filed with the probate court then it becomes a public record and you can obtain a copy from the clerk of the probate court.
If no will has been filed then there is a legal presumption that no will exists and the estate is intestate.
