6 ways to avoid Oklahoma probate after death – the Series

I counsel people who desire to avoid probate to take the necessary steps now to get it done.  Usually, that means creating a living trust and/or re-titling real property.  However, I know from experience that things are not always done before death.

For that reason, I put together a six blog post series 6 ways to avoid Oklahoma probate after death about steps you can take following someone’s death to avoid Oklahoma probate while at the same time getting to the property.  You can find all the posts here on the blog but I am also providing the collection and links to each post below:

#3 Way to avoid Oklahoma probate after death – Affidavit>Delivery>Personal Property

#4 Way to avoid Oklahoma probate after death – Government death benefits
