Title 15, Chapter 9, Section 38
(a) Any person who has made a will may file it in the office of the
judge of the probate court of the county of his residence. The
judge shall maintain a docket in which he shall register the will,
the date on which it was deposited in his office, and the date of
withdrawal of the will by the person making the same or some other
person, as the case may be, if the same is withdrawn. The files
shall be confidential, and no person other than the person
depositing the same, his legal representative, or his attorney in
fact shall have access to the file prior to the death of the person
making and depositing the will. The docket maintained by the judge
shall be public as are other dockets in his office.
(b) Nothing in this Code section shall be construed so as to
prohibit any person from revoking such will by the execution of a
subsequent will or so as to change the ambulatory nature of the will
of any person.
