Legal Question in Wills and Trusts in Illinois

Obtaining a copy of a will

My grandmother recently passed away. I received a court paper from her lawyer stating that I am a legatee and have a right to contest the will, although I don't know what is in the will. How do I go about obtaining a copy of the will?

It is one file with the clerk of the circuit court in the county where your grandmother lived. Contact the court about how to view or obtain a copy.
