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. 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 a death certificate to the registry before any information is released. Once proof of death is verified, the name of the Attorney who prepared the Will is then provided.
- Step 3
— If no match is found in our database, then the Registry will issue an email blast to all attorneys registered in The U.S. Will Registry located in the State of the deceased's last residence.
