Hello JACUSTOMER,

Wills are not made public until they are submitted to probate. If the will has been submitted to probate you would have to check with the clerk of the court of the probate court in which the will was submitted to probate. In New York, the probate court is called Surrogate's Court. So, for example you would contact the Surrogate's Court in the New York county where the will was submitted to probate. Here is a list of the Surrogate's Courts in the counties that comprise New York City.

Hello JACUSTOMER,

Is that in Warren County? If so, go to 4th Judicial District website, and on the left you will see a link for the Surrogate's Court in Warren County.

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
