My friend’s mother in law’s estate was filed but closed intestate as her husband had stated that he was unable to locate the original will. We suspect that this is not true. If we somehow manage to get a copy of the will, can we contest then and handle the estate? Is there any certain time frame to do this?

You may very well do this but you may have a very short statute of limitations depending on your state laws. I’ve no clue what made you believe that the will would be more fruitful to the children than the husband, or it’d be far different than the intestate code. My best advice would be to call around and see if you can locate a good probate attorney who can aptly understand your situation.
