No two estate plans are the same because people have unique goals and circumstances.  If you are seeking an experienced estate lawyer for wills and trusts assistance, including inheritance planning, we are here to help.  Contact us online or by telephone to get in touch with an OKC estate planning law firm for a comprehensive estate solution.

We provide wills and trusts assistance including other estate planning services.

Last will and testament

An Oklahoma will must be in writing, signed by the will-maker, and witnessed and signed by two adults.  Notarization is not required, but a self-proved will must be notarized for smoother probate.  A handwritten will is valid in Oklahoma, but it must be written entirely by hand, then signed and dated. O.S. 84 §55.

Power of Attorney

This crucial document allows you to designate an agent to handle your legal and financial affairs when you are unable to do so.  It can be effective immediately or triggered under certain conditions.  A power of attorney must be signed and notarized. O.S. 58 §3041.

Healthcare Power of Attorney

This important document allows you to designate an agent to handle your healthcare decisions on your behalf.  It can be effective immediately or when you’re unable to communicate your wishes.  This document must be signed by the maker, and also by two additional witnesses. O.S. 63 § 3111.1-13.

Advance directive

This document consists of two parts: the living will, and the healthcare proxy.  Living will cover the end-of-life situation and ensure your wishes are known regarding life support and medical treatment.  Namely, covers if you have a terminal condition, persistent unconsciousness, or end-stage condition.  The healthcare proxy designates someone to make healthcare decisions on your behalf when you are unable to do so.  Advance directive must be signed by the maker, and also by two additional witnesses. O.S. 63 § 3101.4.

Revocable Living Trust

Although not necessary in every estate plan, a revocable trust, also known as a living trust, offers significant benefits.  It helps your estate to avoid probate, ensuring your assets pass directly to beneficiaries without court involvement, thereby maintaining privacy.  The trust document consists of three key elements, the trustee (manager), corpus (assets), and the beneficiaries.
