my grandmoither passed away in july of this year. My grandfather died in 2003. My father died in 1985 My grandparents had only my dad and my aunt. My grandparents told me they were leaving me my dads 50% of the estate and that was going to be their house. Now I find out the will was changed and left everything to my aunt. She has said she is going to give me a cd when it comes open, but the amount is only 5 %of the estate. If the will was changed only a month before she passed away is it valid. How do I get a copy of the old will if my aunt wont give it to me.

Re: grandparents will
You will have to contest the Will and show that you would have been an heir if the disputed Will is found to not be valid.
Did your grandmother have mental capacity, i.e., understand the natrue of the Will when she executed the document?
Factors to look at include, Alzheimer's, decreased mental capacity, etc...
I will be happy to discuss this further with you at your convenience.
