A: I am sorry for your loss. While you indicate you just want a copy of your Mom's will, my recommendation is that you consult with a probate/succession attorney in your area to specifically discuss your Mom's estate as well as the probate process, including your rights. If your sister is not being cooperative with you, then let the attorney know that at your consult so he can provide you your various options. Good luck.
