Question: How do I as a surviving sibling get my sister to give copies of my parents will? They are both deceased and the property is over $600,000

Answer:

If no other relative/interested party has initiated Probate Proceedings in the County court, for your parents’ estate, you may do so. This website has extensive information to guide someone beginning the probate process and to potential legal assistance. Arizona probate law can be found online (A.R.S. Title 14), self help: https://www.azcourts.gov/probate. Your county court staff should be able to assist you, as well.  To briefly answer your question, after the court opens a Probate case, it will Order whomever is in possession of the Last Will to provide it to the Court. The Last Will, at the legally-specified date thereafter become available/accessible to all relevant parties.
