I assume your ex has died and the will was recorded in the Clerk's Office of the Circuit Court of the jurisdiction where he lived when he died.
Yes. Recorded wills are a public record and you may get a copy from that Clerk's Office - they do charge a fee for the copy. However if the will was written before your divorce the law automatically revoked any provision for you - see 64.2-412 of the Virginia Code.

Answers provided are general in nature and usually based on Virginia law. If I answer something posted from another state I'm probably out on a limb. Reliance on any answer posted here is at the sole risk and responsibility of the user, and in no way creates or implies an attorney client relationship with the author, his firm, staff, family or even his dog. And isn't it silly that we have to cover our *(&%$ with disclaimers in case some fool wants to blame me when they screw up? Reading any answer means you agree with the above.
People are entitled to any public record that is not sealed by the court or statute. So, if her will is filed in the Circuit Court you should be able to obtain a copy.
If the will was not updated to benefit the new wife then you still may be omitted under Virginia law.
