Good afternoon. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you.

Yes, you can get a copy of the will. If they are in possession of the will, they need to file the will with the probate court in the county in which your mother resided at the time of her death. This typically happens within 30 days of the date of death. Once it is filed with the court, it becomes public record and can be obtained from the probate records. So, you simply need to call the probate court clerk and ask for their specific process for obtaining the copy.
