Oklahoma City Estate Planning Lawyer

Estate PlanningPlanning for the future is not something that should be put off. Unfortunately, many individuals do not create an estate plan out of a belief that it can “wait until tomorrow.” Some also avoid the subject as considering it can feel uncomfortable. Failing to make a plan, however, can result in your assets being distributed in a way that is against your wishes, in medical decisions which you do not approve of, and more. The first step in making sure that your wishes are honored is retaining an attorney to assist you. Vivid Niroula is an Oklahoma City estate planning lawyer assisting with a wide range of issues. Our office prides itself on providing the highest level of service and we look forward to speaking with you. Contact us today to schedule an appointment.

Assisting Oklahoma residents with creating a will, a trust, a power of attorney, and more

If an individual passes away without a will then they are considered to have died “intestate.” This will result in their assets being distributed in an order that has been pre-determined by the state. Whether or not that order of distribution is consistent, with the deceased’s final wishes, is irrelevant when one passes away intestate. Furthermore, a good deal of an estate can be lost to taxes, unnecessary expenses, and more. Also, an individual’s latter years can be marred by family infighting over finances and medical care if they have not made prior arrangements. Proper estate planning can assist with all of these issues and allow one to have peace of mind in knowing that they can focus on enjoying time with their family.

There are several components of a proper estate plan which can help to make matters as frictionless as possible while ensuring that as many of the assets as possible go to the heirs. First, creating a last will and testament allows one to know that their estate will be distributed as they see fit, and not in a way that has been pre-defined by the state of Oklahoma. Second, creating a trust can provide greater flexibility as to how assets are distributed while potentially allowing the heirs to skip the probate process altogether. Third, creating a power of attorney allows one to designate who will make decisions on their behalf, should they be unable to do so on their own. These decisions can involve both financial affairs and medical issues. Having all of these instruments in place means that the individual, and not others, gets to decide how their future, and the time beyond, unfolds.
