Wills in Oklahoma City

Serving Residents of Oklahoma County

A will, a revocable method to transfer assets that takes place on death, is an important tool for your family to help expedite the probate process in court. If you pass away without an estate plan, the state will write one for you, and the law may distribute assets in a way you might not have desired. The court will also appoint an estate representative, an administrator, who you may not have chosen to be your executor. Having a will can also be very valuable for parents as it allows them to choose their children's guardian.

If you are over 18 years of age and of sound mind, you may draft a valid will. There are certain restrictions on disposing of your property under Oklahoma law. When drafting a will, you may not completely exclude a surviving spouse. You also may not exclude a child or grandchild without indicating that the child or grandchild has been excluded. While it is possible to handwrite a will, it is not recommended, because these wills typically do not include all of the necessary information. The best way to draft a will is to consult an attorney who understands the legal technicalities of the law.
