What happens if the original will can’t be found?

estate planning attorneys Ann Arbor

Ideally you should have your original will handy. However, a copy can be used when your original can’t be found, but there are additional hurdles to getting a copy admitted to probate. You can also save a digital copy and email a copy to your named executor(s) if you don’t mind them getting an advanced look at your will. If you have privacy concerns, at least tell your executor(s) where he or she can find a copy.

If you can’t find the original will or a copy, you can call the estate planning attorney who prepared it. They may still have a copy on file, but don’t count on it.
