Q: My father had his will prepared 10 years ago and now that he has passed away, we cannot find the original will. Will the court allow a copy to be probated?
A: As a general rule, only the original will can be probated in court. A probate court presumes that a will has been revoked if the original cannot be produced. In limited circumstances a copy might be accepted but it is not a guarantee.
