What are the critical decisions you make in an Oklahoma Will?

You have been told that you “need” an Oklahoma Last Will and Testament. But you wonder, why?

How is a Will going to help me? Read on for the answers to this question.

I thought it might be helpful to list the specific things you can accomplish in a Last Will and Testament or a Trust:

1. Determine who gets your property and in what proportions.

2. Choose the person who will take care of your estate and make sure everything is handled like the Will or Trust states.

3. Nominate people to be the guardians of your minor children.

4. Give specific items of personal property to very the person or people to whom you want them to go.

On this blog, I write about and try to answer practical Oklahoma legal questions. My focus and most experience is in estate planning and business issues including Oklahoma non-compete law. I make a living as an attorney in the law firm I founded, Shawn J. Roberts, P.C. in Oklahoma City. I live in Edmond with my wife Amy and my two children, Sam (19) and David (11). We live precisely in the path of where the "wind comes sweeping down the plains."
