When Is Probate Necessary?

When someone dies with a will, the will must be proven, and in order for it to be proven, it must be probated in court. Many people operate off of the assumption that the family members and friends of a deceased individual can simply divide the property in accordance with the wishes stated in the will, but this can lead to all kinds of legal problems, disputes, and arguments. In order to ensure that an individual’s property is truly handled in accordance with their wishes, the probate process must occur. Unfortunately, this process can be challenging and time-consuming, with a number of technical aspects that for the most part, only experienced probate attorneys are suited to deal with. The probate attorneys at Oklahoma Estate Attorneys, PLLC in Oklahoma City, Midwest City, and Edmond, OK are here to help.

Once appointed by the court, the personal representative will take on a number of responsibilities, including the following:
