How do I probate a copy of a lost will?
Asnwer: If the will was lost and not intentionally destroyed by the testator, then we can attempt to probate a copy of the last will and testatament.
Many times this occurs because the Last Will & Testament became lost in a tsunami of papers. Sometimes it gets accidently trashed when a person downsizes to a retirment home. Other times it goes "missing" when a survivor doesn't like what the will gave them or didn't give them. For instance, have you ever heard or seen a house get ransacked by the relations after a person dies?
