If you happen to know the attorney who wrote it,you might try them. You might also go to the county courthouse to see if a copy was filed there as part of the probate process.
This response is only general information and is not legal advice. It does not form an attorney-client relationship and should not be relied upon to take or refrain from taking any action. You should seek a qualified attorney before taking any action related to your inquiry.
If you are an heir, then you have a right to see the Will. If it is has been probated you can also get a copy from the court.
If the Will was not probated, then contact the executor and ask him when he will do so. If there is no response, then consult with a local attorney.
If, as it appears, no estate administration has been commenced, you could commence proceedings yourself, as an interested person, and compel your father to produce the will. You will need an attorney to do much of anything, and that may well be costly. It may not be worthwhile, but that is a question that cannot be answered without much more information. You might let your father know you are prepared to commence some proceedings, if necessary, and try to work out a compromise with him as a cost saving alternative.
This comment is general in nature and is not intended as legal advice. It does not create an attorney client relationship and obviously is not confidential. You should contact an attorney in your area who can review with you all of the relevant facts and give you specific legal advice.
