The short answer to your question is 'no'. The legal 'Last Will and Testament' of any individual is just that, a last say, which is not usually disclosed until the death has been recorded in accordance with said law. Of course there have been circumstances where by next of kin either by request or demand sought to read a 'Will' before the death of the individual. This action is determined by a court of law. Regardless whether the grounds stemmed from a medical or personal nature, a 'Last will and Testament' is usually not read or contested until after the person dies.
