How do I find out if my dad died?

Check with the probate court in the county where your father lived to discover if a will is on file. Court clerks should be able to track wills based on the date of death and the name of the testator. If you believe there is a will but it has not been discovered, you would not be out of line to request access to your father's papers and files. A lawyer could make an application on your behalf.

The fact that he hasn't called or come by means just that, he hasn't come by means he's alive, right? He may have been too busy or may be unable to take time off work. Sometimes people who have lost their jobs can't afford to take time off so they stay at home and get sick instead. It's best to think of them as dead until you hear something different.

It's normal to feel confused or sad about your father dying. But he isn't really gone until the day comes when you decide he's gone for good. Have patience with yourself; it may take some time before you can sort through your feelings and move on.

How do I find my dead father’s will?

You must call the probate court and the court clerk's office with your father's name and date of death to discover if a will was filed. This can sometimes be done online. The court must then decide if the will is legitimate and whether two witnesses were present. If so, the will is accepted by law as valid.

The witnesses' names and addresses are found in the probate file. You will need to provide this information when you call or write for more details about the will.

If no will is found, one may have been written but not submitted to the court. In this case, another search needs to be done to locate it.

If a will is found, it should be submitted to the court for approval. If it meets the requirements of the Utah Code, then it can be admitted to probate.

The probate process can take some time. It depends on how many objects have been filed against the will, what kind of estate the deceased had, etc.

In conclusion, a will is a legal document that expresses your wishes about who gets your property after you die. You should consider talking with an attorney and other relatives about what should happen after you die because this decision can have important consequences for them.

How do you find out if my father left me anything in his will?

To find out if your father left a will, contact his attorney, executor, or the appropriate probate court. You should also look through your father's papers to see whether he saved a copy of the will. If he has left you anything, it should be specified in his will.

How do I find my deceased father?

If you don't know where he last resided, check with family members. Once you've determined the state and county, go to the probate court during business hours and ask to examine the file. Provide your father's entire name, date of birth, and death, as well as his Social Security number, if you have it.

If there is no file or if the information is not available, contact the Department of Health Services in the place where he died. They will tell you whether any relatives were notified about the death and, if so, who they are.

You can also search the online database of deceased individuals named in California deaths records at The site provides links to county offices that hold files on deceased individuals.
