Tulsa Probate Lawyer
The probate process is a bit more difficult, but can be navigated with the right Oklahoma probate attorney. Through filing all of the proper documents, your lawyer can also act as the executor of your estate. Working as your personal representative, your attorney can distribute assets, locate any heirs, and settle debts that may be left behind. The first step is naming an executor and asking the court to recognize that executor. Before naming a representative, the court challenges the validity of a will to determine heirs.
After this decision, the next step is creating an inventory. All assets, debts, medical costs, and legal expenses. The attorney may due this in order to make sure everything is satisfied with the court. This will ensure the transfer of all properties and assets to the appointed heirs.
