The State of NJ if a will is made are members of the entire family required to see it. I know there was a will but I was told by the exectutor what was in it but was never shown the will. Do I have a right to see the will. Also I was asked for my address for papers to be sent for the will to be probated but never received any papers. :confused:

I am currently the executor of my mother's estate in NJ.

When I filed for probate, I was required to send a "Notice of Probate" to each beneficiary and the next of kin. This form stated where the will was probated, who the executors are and states that a copy of the will be made available upon request. I had to sign a paper saying that I did this. I did but if I didn't the state has no way of knowing unless someone reports me. You should be able to get a copy of the will assuming it has been probated by going to the Surrogate Court of the county where the person died. It is a public record.
