Mount Juliet, TN asked in Uncategorized for Tennessee

Q: My grandmother recently passed away on 9/20/2020. When she was alive she told me she changed her will and added me.

However, my mom is executor and she has not told me exactly what was stated in the will. How can I get a copy if I’m not executor but someone who is named in the will?

A: If the Will is filed at Probate, then go to the Court and look at the file. If it is not Probated, then the Will has no effect, and your Grandmother died intestate where the Heirs take the land and the Next of Kin take her personal property.
