We can take your original Will and store it for you, this procedure is called Safekeeping, however, we do not recommend it. We are mandated by law to follow several procedures if you or a family member wanted get your Will out of safekeeping. We strongly advise you to keep your original Will stored in a safe place and notify at least one family member the location of where the Will is stored.
We do not have the paperwork and more importantly, we cannot give you legal advice as to which probate procedure would best suit the decedent’s estate and whether or not you properly prepared your paperwork. The risk of an error is too great and the consequences could lead to a denial of the probate procedure, in which your filing fees would not be refunded and could even lead to law suits. The County Clerk’s office strongly recommends that an attorney be hired for this very important procedure.
