Answer: There's no "right" to see anothe person's will. Was that all you wanted to know?
I'm happy to answer follow-up questions. If you have none, please
"ACCEPT" my answer.
There can sometimes be a delay of an hour or more in between my followup answers because I may be helping other customers, conducting legal research, or taking a break. If we're writing late in the evening, I may need to get some sleep and resume helping you the following morning.
Bonuses of even a dollar are much appreciated and help support this site.
I REALLY appreciate FEEDBACK so that I can continuously improve!
All my best,

You can tell him he'll have to wait until your mom passes.
Meanwhile, does anyone have Power of Attorney? Who?
Sorry about the delay in getting back to you - I rec'd a phone call.
Legally, you are the only family member with the right to a copy of your mother's will.
However, the more diplomatic you are now, the less of a family feud after your mother passes.
It sounds to me as though you have a wolf at the door. You do not have to let him in.
My best - you're dealing with an uncomfortable situation.
(Feel free to ask for me by name next time you're here. )
