Estate planning in Oklahoma isn't the most popular topic. No one really likes to think about their death, but we're all mortal. As Oklahoma City estate planning attorneys, we have good news and bad news for you.
The good news is that an estate planning attorney can help you decide what happens to your stuff. Now, we know what some of you are likely thinking, "What stuff?" Well, believe it or not, your bank account, your car, any retirement plan, any home or land you might own now (or in the future), any guns, any business interests, and any other property of yours (including mineral rights and oil rights!) can be subject to that scary place known as the Oklahoma probate court. There are estate planning tools that can be used to help you decide what happens to your stuff and minimize what passes through probate.
The bad news is that if you do not use estate planning to at least set up a Last Will and Testament in Oklahoma, Oklahoma law determines what happens to all of your belongings. And if you have minor children? The court will also decide what happens to them. And there's a very good chance that you wouldn't like any of the decisions made by the court.
So, do yourself (and your loved ones) a favor and schedule a consultation with an Oklahoma City estate planning attorney. Estate planning really is a beneficial tool for your future and for the future of your loved ones.
