BizAttorney :

Good evening! I can help you out with your legal question tonight.

BizAttorney :

In order to better assist you, I need to ask you a few quick questions. When did your father in law die?

Customer:

4 moths ago

BizAttorney :

I'm sorry for your loss. Do you know if a probate has been opened for her father's estate?

Customer:

no, even i dont know what it means

BizAttorney :

Ok, when someone dies with assets, the executor of the estate has to open a probate account with the court in the county where he/she lived/died.

BizAttorney :

The will would have been filed in the probate suit at that time.

BizAttorney :

So you would call the county where he died and call the court to see if a probate has been opened under his name.

BizAttorney :

If it has, then you can get a copy of the will. If it hasn't, then you are unable to see the will yet.

Customer:

O. K. thanks

BizAttorney :

You are very welcome! Good luck and please leave me feedback before you go.

BizAttorney :

Have a good night and take care.
