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
." I beleive you me, have never

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
