A Last Will and Testament May not be Private

A last will and testament which goes through the probate process becomes part of a public record as do most court records. Through the probate process, the court determines the personal representative and determines guardianships, debts owed, as well as assets available to pay debts of the decedent. The court will also determine which debts are part of estate administration costs. All these personal details become part of the public record.
