Legal Question

Asked on: 9/20/13, 9:36 pm

My brother who has been estranged from his two adult children for several years has just passed away. Apparently, he had a new will drawn up two weeks before he passed. The 'new' will is in the hands of a local attorney who has told his children that they have "no right to see what the will says". Supposedly, everything in the estate is going to my brothers "visiting nurse" who just happens to be the attorneys sister. The attorney told his children that "they will be allowed to see the will in six months, after it has gone thru probate". Can this possibly be true? The children are not privy to ANY information?
