18 Questions Answered
- Q. Can you legally quit claim real estate to someone not on the title deed in Oklahoma?
- A: You can quitclaim any interest you might own in a piece of property to anyone you choose. Whether the quitclaim deed actually conveys an interest in the property depends on whether you actually owned an interest in the property at the time. You'll also want to be careful that you don't cloud someone else's ownership interest by purporting to convey interests you know you don't own.
- Q. Any way to distribute estate assets via trust or will incrementally over time as opposed to a lump sum distribution?
- A: Absolutely. This is one of the major benefits of a trust. It allows you to control your assets even after death. You can set it up to pay out however you’d like.
- Q. My mother passed away a year ago. How do i force my father to probate her will?
- A: Yes, you can force the will to be probated. According to Section 21 of Title 58 of the Oklahoma statutes, “Every custodian of a will, within thirty days after receipt of information that the maker thereof is dead, must deliver the same to the district court having jurisdiction of the estate, or to the executor named therein. A failure to comply with the provisions of this section makes the person failing responsible for all damages sustained by any one injured thereby.” Furthermore, according to Section 24 of Title 58, "If it be alleged in the petition that the will is in the possession of a third person and the court is satisfied that the allegation is correct, an order must be issued and served upon the person having possession of the will, requiring him to produce it in the court at the time named in the order. If he has possession of the will and neglects or refuses to produce it in obedience to the order, he may by warrant of the court be committed to the jail of the county, and kept in close confinement until he produces it." As an heir at law of your mother, you are entitled to notice if your father ever probates the will on his own volition. You also have a right to start the probate process and require your dad to produce the will. You should contact an Oklahoma probate attorney and get the probate process started.
