How A Will Search Works:
The U.S. Will Registry offers a free comprehensive database search identifying the contact information of the attorney who prepared the Will. This information is searchable by the name and birthdate of the individual who made the Will. The registry is user-friendly and easily accessible. Registered wills are dated as far back as 1975.
The simple process by which the location of the Will is registered and a user locates the Will in the database is as follows:
- Step 1 —A loved one who is unaware of the location of a Will searches by name, county and birthdate of the deceased.
- Step 2 — If a search is done for a Will and a match is found, then the person searching for the Will must provide your drivers license and a death certificate of the deceased to the registry before any information is released. Once verified, the location of the will is then provided to the family member's attorney.
- Step 3 — If no match is found in our database, then your information is automatically added to our MISSING WILL DATABASE. This will allow all attorneys registered with The U.S. Will Registry to have access to your contact information when searching for family members of a deceased client.
