The challenges and grief associated with losing a loved one can be extremely difficult and emotional for many people. Things can become further compounded if you have been chosen as the executor of your loved one’s estate, thus making it all the more important to consult with a skilled Tulsa probate attorney.
Oklahoma probates and elsewhere require attention to detail, which is why an experienced Tulsa probate attorney is often needed to help navigate one through the process.
Fry & Elder can assist you in the following areas of the estate administration process. These include:
- The probate process
- Trust administration
- Estate planning
- Real estate
What estate administration entails?
Typically, collecting all the assets of your loved one is the first step in the estate administration process. An experienced Tulsa probate attorney is well versed in this process and can aid you with the right legal advice in how to distribute and appraise the assets.
A knowledgeable Tulsa probate attorney will also help guide you through the process of paying any potential property debt. If there are multiple heirs to the property, we can help with those matters and also counsel you on the best way to sell real estate even if the property is in the probate process.
Why a Tulsa probate attorney will help you to best plan for the future
While it may seem unsettling and difficult, you would be wise to plan ahead, particularly if you have a generous amount of property, are terminally ill or have young children. By drafting out a will, you will better ensure that things run smoothly and the property will be distributed according to your wishes. You are of course free to write your own will, but you would be best served if you allowed an experienced and highly regarded Tulsa probate attorney to help you write the will.
