Estate Planning (Probate Avoidance)
For many, many years everyone stated how important it was to have a Will. In fact, having a Will was a sign of financial status in earlier days. However, the only thing having a Will does is guarantee your heirs a seat in the Probate Court. Once that happens, the only guarantee is the lawyers will get paid! Proper Estate Planning means avoid Court altogether and not having to pay attorneys….again. At OkLegalSolutions, we have advised clients on proper estate planning for many years.
My very first legal job out of law school was working for the Probate Judge in Tulsa County. I watched bereaved spouses and children spend their parents and loved ones’ entire estates on lawyers fighting over the smallest things. Later I became a Court-appointed Special Administrator. I was paid by the Court from estate funds to settle disputes.
Don’t let this happen to you. Spend the time and money now making sure your loved ones don’t fight over your estate.
