Citation to Produce the Will

When an individual passes away Section 473.043 RSMO requires that the person having the custody of the will deliver it to the probate division of the circuit court which has jurisdiction of the estate.

If a will is in the safe deposit box of the decedent, the Statute requires that the custodian deliver the will to the proper probate court. The Statute also provides that if the probate division of the circuit court is satisfactorily informed that any person has in his possession the will of any testator, and refuses to produce the same, the court may summon the person, and compel that person, by attachment and commitment, to produce the same.
