I have a question about law and contesting a will of someone living. How would I even be able to obtain a copy of the will? Is there a way?

I'll give a little background as to why I am asking. Okay, My father has an estate worth over 1 million dollars. He was a deadbeat from the start, every thing he could keep from giving us, he did, he took our house that my mother's parents PAID for, my mom worked her a** off helping put him through school, he was a constant cheater, he tried to get us taken by Division of Youth and family services, but when my mother told him to come get us, he had her approval that he could raise us (The us is me, my sister, and a brother). He quickly stopped doing that. When I was away in the military, he contested paying for my college which was written in the divorce agreement, telling the judge that I was getting my college paid for by the Army, which was a outright lie, because I was reserves and they were only going to pay a portion of the 3,000 bucks I needed to attend. But, folks, that's not all there is. WHen I was eight he remarried one of the women he cheated on my mom with. That year she (The step B****) told me when I got a bike for my birthday, and I QUOTE" Don't think you'll get anything from him when he dies, cause You got That Bike! I will get everything." I beleive you me, have never forgotten this.

So if there is anybody here who knows the law specifically in Maryland and contesting wills I would most appreciate your help and advice. I am specifically looking at this law here:
Tortuous Interference with an Inheritance
Instead of contesting a will or claiming it's invalid for any reason, there's another way to interfere with an estate. You can file a lawsuit against the person who is receiving the property you think should be yours when the creator of the will is still alive.

This tortuous interference
requires you to prove that the defendant (person you're suing) interfered with the creation of the will for any reason. If you win your case, not only will you be able to inherit from the will, you'll recover attorney fees and any other costs you paid associated with the suit as additional punishment.

I'm sorry to hear about your situation.


I'll try to call a couple of lawyer friends of mine here in DC to see what they say but ...

Honestly you should not take anyone's legal advice, including my own, over the internet. If you can spend a little money to consult with a qualified estate/probate lawyer for a couple of hours, you will get the best advice straight from the horse's mouth.


But I try to check it out for you and let you know what I am told.

Thank you for looking into it for me, unfortunately I don't have the money to actually pay a lawyer, that's the big problem. This is how he kept my potential down, I never got to go to college because he screwed me out of that, and when I tried to get financial aid he had claimed me as a dependant that year and because the amount of money he holds, I was denied the grants. He has made it impossible for any of his children to make any kind of life for ourselves, he never paid for any of our colleges. I finally went later with financial aids and grants, but I was already a mother then, and then other things crippled my advancemant... I just want what has been withheld from me my whole life, I know I will never get the love, so I will take the money! Maybe I should just call him and ask about his will. If he says I am not in it, then I will hang up and call a lawyer, maybe I can find one pro bono or who doesn't get paid until The findings are made?
