How can I view the will written by my grandfather?

I want to view the will written by my grandfather written long before. As my mother died, my father went for 2nd marriage, so I am living with a guardian. So my father has no time to even speak with me, he is so found of his new relationships. So he is denying me to show the will written by my grandfather. So I want to view it without his help. So if I could get money I shall join some college. I've got 94% in +2, but my guardian is not willing to make me study. So some one help me so that I could continue my studies.

IF your grandfather left a valid will, it should have been admitted to probate, either in a probate court, surrogate court, or whichever other judicial authority is responsible for probating wills and estates. My suggestion to you would be to visit the local Courthouse or judicial center and ask someone there to direct you to where wills are probated. There you should be able to view your Grandfather's original Will and read it. Once you have found it, however, there is no guarantee that his Will will provide you with the answers you are seeking. Although there have been instances of guardians hiding information from the lawful heir; they are not common. If for whatever reason it does appear that the guardian or your father has mishandled your Grandfather's estate, you would need to retain an attorney immediately and have the attorney sue for an accounting. All persons responsible for distributing the assets of a deceased person in accordance with a Will are acting in a position of trust, and must strictly account for their actions. Good luck.
