A: In order to procure your father's will, you first need to procure or provide his death certificate. With the certificate, we request a certification of will from the Office of Notary Inspections. Said certification will identify whether your father was testate upon his death, the will's deed poll number and the notary who authorized the will. Then, the notary is contacted to produce a certified copy of the will. Be advised: should your father be alive, only he can request a copy of his will.
