Helping You & Your Loved Ones Navigate the Complex Probate Process
The Probate court is where a person’s estate passes to be distributed if a person dies without a will (intestate) or with a will. The court, following Oklahoma Law, will distribute the estates of people who die without a will. Similarly, people who die with a will will have their estate pass through probate court.
Probate court is the court system that determines what is going to happen to people’s assets after they are gone. This includes directing assets to creditors to honor obligations, and having any remaining assets passed to heirs according to the wishes of the deceased.
