I know such a document exists as I have seen it, I had a copy on file but my hard drive was lost and so was file

It is in relation to my son and who will have guardianship of him in the event of the applicants and my passing.
Customer: replied 16 days ago.
This was created by my son's mother without my knowledge. It names my mother, sister and I in the document. I also know from which legal firm it was created by. Your assistance in this matter is greatly appreciated.

Hello,

I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.

I wonder whether you're ok with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.

Thank you!
Nicola

Good morning. Do you benefit under the will and is the person still alive?

Customer: replied 15 days ago.
It is not in relation to assets but in relation to who will have guardianship to my son in the event of mothers passing and mine.
Expert:  Legal Eagle replied 15 days ago.

If you are not a beneficiary of the will, you are not entitled to see a copy of it. It is also not possible to find out which solicitor actually holds the will.
