Estate Planning in Oklahoma

Need an estate plan in Kingfisher, Stillwater or Watonga?

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. A Kingfisher lawyer from our firm can help you make sure that these documents are properly structured and handled.
