Hello. The concern likely would be whether the will was valid according to law of the state in which the will was made, at the time of making. Do confer privately with an attorney as to your personal needs and legal issues. Some attorneys are available seven days for emergency legal needs. Many attorneys will speak initially at no charge. Then, if legal work is performed, some attorneys will provide a reduced fee for financial hardship. Some attorneys may also assist you in a limited scope manner to conserve legal costs. All the best.

As long as the will was valid and properly executed according to the laws of the state where it was made, it should be recognized by the other states.
