How do I force my sisters to show me mom's will?

My mom passed away 5/6/2016 she left a will and my sisters will not let me see it. Can you advise me on how to move forward? What form do I need to file? The will has not been probated , they are disrespecting my mom will and treating me like I am not their sister.

I am sorry for the loss of your mother and the ill will shown by your sisters. You cannot really force them to show you the will. You can file to open an estate for your mother without the will. They would then be required to file the will. The will has no legal power until the probate court issues letters testamentary.
You should seek the assistance of an attorney who does probate work.
