Wills & TrustsWhen someone dies in Oklahoma, their property passes to loved ones through either the person's Will, a Trust or through the State's intestate succession laws. If that person has a properly executed Will, the Court will respect their wishes and enforce the Will. However, if a person dies without a Will, Oklahoma statute determines who your heirs are and what they receive.
If you have no Will and no heirs at law, your estate will pass to the State. For this reason and many others, a person's Last Will and Testament is one of the most important documents ever drafted for that person, and for the people left behind. A Will not only designates the distribution of your property, but it also communicates your wishes, which makes the process easier for your loved ones.
