Frequently Asked Questions: Another Person's Will

What if I can't find my relative's Will?

If you have the relative's death certificate, you may inquire with the court as to whether the decedent deposited the Will with the court.

 

Can I check to see if someone has a Will?

Whether or not a Will is on deposit with the Probate Court is confidential information. The court will only check for a Will upon death of the testator when provided with verification of death.

 

If I present the court with a copy of my relative's death certificate, may I obtain a copy of his/her Will?

Yes. Upon proper verification of death you may obtain a copy of the Will. There is a $10 charge for the first page and $1 for each additional page for a certified copy.
