Do I Have a Right to See My Mother’s Will?

Can I obtain a will for my dead mother who passed in August of 2009? My brother who is executor and I do not speak. Is there a way to obtain said document without contacting my only relative?

The answer will depend on whether the will has been probated yet or not. A will is not a public document until filed in court. Typically, the will isn’t filed until death of its maker, allowing probate proceedings to take place.
