Media Probate Lawyer Discusses Beneficiaries of a Will
This legal question was provided by Avvo.com. You can view the original question here.
How would a beneficiary named in a Will go about verifying what in fact was willed to them? Also, does the beneficiary/ beneficiaries have the right to see the Will, and is it procedural that a Will is read with all of the named beneficiaries present?
A will that has been probated is a public document that anyone can request. A copy of the Will may be obtained by contacting the Register of Wills in the County where the will was probated and paying the charges for duplication. There is no rule about a will being read with all of the named beneficiaries present.
