Thanks very much for your patience. I'm sorry to hear about your mother's passing. The answer to your question is no; you aren't obligated to send a copy of the will to her sister. When you have the will probated, you have to provide a copy to the court, but the law doesn't require that you send a copy to beneficiaries or relatives at all. If they would like, they could go to the courthouse and view a copy and they could certainly informally request a copy from you, but you aren't required to send a copy at all to anyone other than the probate court.

What other questions did you have for me today that I can help you out with:-)?
