Angry Can't get copy of my fathers will

How does one get a copy of a will? My mother died last year and my father last month, my older brother is in charge and I have asked if I could get a copy (twice) of the will he asked me why, I said cuz I want to see it (never seen one before) and I am one of the heirs so I think all of us should receive a copy (theres 8 including him). He said it was at his house so a month later he is lying and taking money so I called the lawyer who did the will today and they said they could not give me a copy that my brother should...so who is right? I am sure after I get a copy I will be asking more questions as he is not doing right by my parents wishes...Thanks for the help in this matter

Default Re: Can't get copy of my fathers will

Here is how it goes.

You have the right to see the will if you are a blood member of the deceased. If your brother is the executer of the will, he has control. However, you may go to your county court building and file a grievance to the probate court to protest the will. This will make your brother show the document and matters can then be discussed pertaining to the wills contents.
