My dad passed away four years ago and I am his only child. His widow not my mother told me that The copies of the death certificate and will are her and I can only see or have them when she dies. Is there a way to get these without going through her. I think she is doing something with the house my dad left me and want to know where I stand.

Anyone can open the succession. Open your father's succession and have the court order her to produce the will. As for the death certificate, you can get a copy of that yourself from www.vitalchek.com.
