When do I need to have an Oklahoma Last Will and Testament?

Have you ever tried to figure out: Do I need to have an Oklahoma Last Will and Testament?

You have minor children.

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.
