Estate Planning in Oklahoma
Need an estate plan in Kingfisher or Stillwater?
Estate planning is a very serious matter that requires the assistance of
a skilled representative to effectively secure the outcome that you desire.
If you want to plan ahead to safeguard your assets or are nearing the
end of your life and need to protect your family, then you should start
considering how you wish to divide your assets and property among your
beneficiaries. The process of ensuring that asset distribution will happen
according to your wishes is called estate planning. Your estate may consist
of any or all of the following, among other things:
- Any tangible personal property, such as tools, documents, clothing, furniture,
cars, artwork, and equipment
- Intangible personal property, which is essentially anything of value that
cannot be physically held in your hands, such as bank accounts, stock
options, copyrights, and royalties
- Your real property, or interests in real property that you own, including
your right, title, and interest in your land
There are several ways to have your estate distributed according to your
wishes. First, you may assign specific property or general wishes to beneficiaries in a
will. The will may go through probate, during which your wishes will be carried
out. Second, you may create a
trust, through which you can assign assets and property to a trustee who will
have your assets distributed to your beneficiaries according to your wishes.
