Legal Answers
4 Questions Answered

Q. How do I get a copy of my grandmother's will apparently I was left something in the will but no one ever told me
A: If the will was probated, then you can get a copy at the local Register of Wills. You can also reach out to the executor who has an obligation to notify all heirs that an estate has been opened.
Q. We live in PA. We filed a Will and my fiancé left me the house. Do I need to b on the house title to be really Legal??
A: It depends on the deed and will. If the house was owned by your fiancé and his wife who predeceased him as tenants by the entireties, then the house would have become his upon the death of his wife. If the will leaving the house to you is valid, then the children shouldn't be able to make a claim.
Q. My father died in February of 2017. Stepmother refuses to let me see his will. How can I see it
A: If an estate was opened, you can go to the local Register of Wills. If not, you can file a Petition requiring your stepmother to produce the will. If there is no will, then the estate goes through intestate which would give 50% of the estate to his wife, and 50% to his children.
Q. My mother remarried and found an old bank account of deceased husbands. Why can she not access the money?
A: If the bank account is in her deceased husband's name, then she may need to open up his estate. The bank probably will not give her the funds until she begins probate. In that case, she'll either need to present the will to the Register of Wills (of which you would then be entitled to see), or it will go through intestacy in which case you may be entitled to part of it, depending on the amount of the bank account and any deductions payable through the estate. I do not see why she would need to divorce her current husband or change her name back - it doesn't make sense. You should speak with an attorney about your rights.
