Have Legal Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
Good evening! I can help you out with your legal question tonight.
In order to better assist you, I need to ask you a few quick questions. When did your father in law die?
4 moths ago
I'm sorry for your loss. Do you know if a probate has been opened for her father's estate?
no, even i dont know what it means
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.
The will would have been filed in the probate suit at that time.
So you would call the county where he died and call the court to see if a probate has been opened under his name.
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.
O. K. thanks
You are very welcome! Good luck and please leave me feedback before you go.
Have a good night and take care.
