Serving Payne, Logan, & Noble Counties
Estate planning is something every adult should consider. Proper estate planning will ensure that your desires are carried out after you pass away or if you become unable to make your own decisions. If the proper documents are not prepared prior to such a circumstance, the court must follow state law regarding the disposition of your assets, care of your children, and end of life decisions. These default rules may not be what you would choose for yourself.
Allow the attorneys at DeLacerda & Oliver to discuss all of your options and prepare an estate plan for you.
Power of Attorney
When a loved one dies, a court proceeding is sometimes needed to dispose of that person’s estate. This legal process is called probate. A probate may be necessary even if a person dies with a will or other estate planning documents.
The probate of an estate transfers title to property, determines tax liabilities, settles legitimate debts and extinguishes others, and distributes the property of the estate to the persons entitled to receive it under the terms of a will or the laws of intestate succession.
Sometimes this can become a complicated and drawn out process.
DeLacerda & Oliver can handle all aspects of the probate process to minimize the stress and confusion to you and your family. Contact our office to discuss if a probate is necessary in your situation.
