In Australia there is no reading of wills.
Did he make a will after his marriage to Val or was it his original Will?
If you are a beneficiary under the will you can request a copy. If not they do not have to give you a copy.
Do you know if both wills have been probated?
If the Wills have been probated you can contact the supreme court in your state and get an exemplification. That will give oyu a copy of the will as it is attached to the probate.
Then you will know what is in them and you can get more detailed advise on whether you can challenge them or are out of time. I hope this makes sense and is of assistance.
