A will is a legal agreement which allows and ensures an individual to leave their assets to individuals of their desire after they have passed. To obtain a copy of a will an individual must visit the courthouse in which the will was legally signed off on.
A copy of the will can be provided to an individual if they provided a full legal name of the will’s creator, their birth place, and the location of their residence. A will is considered public record and therefore, with the proper information, an individual will be able to easily obtain a copy of a will. If a will is still being processed through a probate court or hearing, then an individual may be denied a copy of the will. When a person is creating a will it is advisable to make copies of the completed will for individuals that are listed on the will.
