How do I obtain a copy of a will as the guardian of an only child when I am not the executor of the will and it hasn't been listed for probate? I cannot afford a solicitor nor entitled to Legal Aid, but think it is unfair our son has been left with no assets nor myself to raise our son. The father had not done a tax return for three years and underestimated and did not declare all income to avoid paying child support. We have been telling the ato since October last year and nothing was done. How can this be rectified? By contesting the will? He passed in May this year. I'm still paying off debt from separation. I have no financial assistance now he has passed. He was terminally ill and blew all the superannuation and life insurance we worked to build.
