Access Will

Know about the people who can access will?

When someone dies, you have probably watched in the movies or on TV or read in a book about where a family gathers around a big table after a relative has died to listen to the reading of the will.

While this is a false theatrical creation, it doesn’t usually happen like that in the real world. There is no legal requirement that a will be read out loud to anyone. Once the will is located, it should be given to the estates attorney.

The estate attorney has to determine who is entitled to receive a copy of the Will and who should be sent a copy even if state law does not require it. It may sound astounding to you that upon your death your will may be accessed not only by your agent but also by the following people:

  • All of the beneficiaries named in the Will are entitled to receive a copy of the Will.
  •  Your spouse, parent or issue (children, grand-children etc.);
  • Any person who would be entitled to share of your estate if you die without a will;
  • The accountant for the estate must receive a copy of the Will in order to for paying off the debts of the estate and income taxes of the estate, if any.
  • A parent or guardian of a minor mentioned in the will or who would be entitled to a share of the estate if you die without a will;
  •  Any other person who has a claim at law or in equity against your estate
  • Any person who is eligible to make a family provision application against your estate.
  • Once a Last Will and Testament is filed for probate with the state court, it becomes a public court record.
