My Grandmother died in 2008 in Portland, OR. I was a legal heir but never received a copy of the Will. I would like to receive a copy from the court if it is filed there? How/where do I request one?

A: If your grandmother's Will was probated in Oregon then I will be happy to obtain a copy for you.

If it was not probated (for example, if she had a Revocable Living Trust or owned no assets in her name alone at her death) then there is no way official to locate a copy of her Will. If you know who was named as the Personal Representative (Executor) in the Will you can ask that person for a copy.
