Can a court require my husband to produce his will in a discovery? 2 Answers as of June 13, 2011

My husband refused to show his will in a discovery. Can the courts order him to produce it so they can see what he is hiding? He has willed everything to his daughter he just found.

Yes, the court can force discovery of the Will under normal circumstances. However, it takes a Motion in court to get such an action taken. Speak to an attorney about it. Good luck.

What difference would it make even if a court allowed it to be seen (and they might not)? Wills almost never identify specific property, and wills also can be changed. It is also perfectly legal to disinherit a spouse. So again, why would it matter?
