Can any legal process force my Jamaican family to show me a will?

A family member has dies and left a will (we believe); how can family members who believe they may be beneficiaries get access to a will…?

Hi Legal Wiz,
A family member has dies and left a will (we believe); how can family members who believe they may be beneficiaries get access to a will if the executor does not provide it? Just wondering if there is a legal process to compel a will to be disclosed to family members.

Thanks. Kevin

Good day Kevin,
Thanks for writing in. Your circumstances have to be weighed to determine the legal process applicable. Usually when the will is to be probated, or if the family member applies for Letters of Administration, the will has to be presented. However, an attorney should be able to assist before you get to the Courts.
All the best!
