Can I find out who is in my mother's will or if it has been changed?

If the Will has been filed with the probate court it will be a public record. Check the county in which she resided at the time of her death. Ask your sister for a copy of the Will. Not all assets are controlled by a Will though. Any financial asset that had a payable on death beneficiary would trump the Will. If she is using an attorney to help administer the estate you should receive a letter the next few months that gives you an overview of the process. Don't expect any assets to be distributed until at least 6-7 months after the date of death. If it is a complex estate it could take even longer than that. Sorry for your loss.
