Hello. My name is***** am an attorney. I will review your question. I may need to clarify facts first. I will answer & we can discuss issues.
Have you attempted to contact the probate court in the county where he died? The will would be in the file. Do you know the county? Possibly I can find the phone number for you of the court. You can attempt to call them. Sometimes they will send you a copy of the file in the mail for a fee.
Yes. The name of your grandfather and the year of death could be enough. Most likely it is computerized and they would use those as keywords. Here is the probate court's number:(###) ###-####/p>
If there was a violation of the will, you could still attempt to challenge the disbursement of assets, especially if you were a minor child. You may not be able to get the property back, but you could possibly receive damages for the conversion of assets from you to someone else. You would demand an accounting or make a motion or file a petition to re-open the estate proceeding. We can continue to discuss if you want to do so.
