Locating a missing will through The U.S. Will Registry involves a simple search. This search taps into a national database that stores the location of a will and final estate documents.
A copy (or Duplicate Copy) of a Last Will may be held with an attorney, an institution, a friend, or at home. A will registered with The U.S. Will Registry identifies where those documents have been stored. The U.S. Will Registry has registrations dated back to 1967.
Take it from the people we have been able to help:
"My family had no idea who the attorney was that drafted my dad’s will. Thankfully, his attorney registered the will and we were able to locate it through the registry.” (S. Pollak)
"Our grandmother gave her will to a friend of hers. When we performed a search in The U.S. Will Registry 14 years later, we were able to see who to contact for a copy of her will. So thankful." (D. Hall)
