What happens if we cannot find the decedent’s will?

If you cannot find a decedent’s will, the law presumes that he destroyed it. Now, there’s a couple options, is that if you can find a copy or obtain a copy from the last known lawyer who prepared one, if the beneficiaries in the will agree, then you could try to probate a copy of the will. If the beneficiaries of the last will do not agree, then it could end up being a contest where you could have one set of beneficiaries trying to probate a copy and another set of beneficiaries trying to probate under laws of intestacy.
