If you were the contractor, you can file a mechanics and materialmans lien on the property as long as it is not too long after you last worked on the property or supplied materials. Then if they don't pay, you can foreclose the lien.
Thank you for the quick response. co heir sold property using a quit claim deed then the property was then sold to another party with a Joint tenancy warranty deed. There never was a probate case.

Any attorney you speak with about this issue will be unable to give you a good answer until he/she is able to see the different deeds you speak of and the quiet titles you speak of along with a few more facts.
Our property was sold fraudulently. The buyers must have known something about the fraud because shortly after the sales quiet title actions were filed. Can a quiet title ever be successfully overturned?
If the quiet title action has been completed to Judgment, it would be very difficult to overturn that Judgment. If it has not gone to judgment, you can win some quiet title cases depending of course on the facts of the case.

I did not contest this as my wages have gone up recently, but now they are saying I owe $3000 in back support. Why is this? Are they going back to when I first got the new... Read more »
The Court cannot go back to the point you received a salary increase unless that was the same date the motion to modify your child support was filed. In other words, the date of filing for the modification will be the date that your income from that date forward will be used to calculate your new...Read more »

I’m hoping to divide the land so people can rent it, thereby giving them an address in such state to establish residence. If they have a mailing address in which they then can get a drivers license in Oklahoma even though they don’t live at the address. Could a case of fraud be brought against... Read more »
Yes you can lease property that you own. Whether the folks that rent from you can establish residency within Oklahoma merely from leasing property is a different legal question. Residency is obtained by actually residing within the State of Oklahoma. That requirement is not met by merely leasing...Read more »
IF YOU FILED THE PROBATE AND WAS APPOINTED AS THE PERSONAL REPRESENTATIVE OF THE ESTATE, you should be able to access the bank funds to make the payments. Talk to the bank again or better yet have your attorney talk to them.
I took out a mortgage loan exclusively in my name and solely based on my own personal credit. I then made an offer on a house that was accepted before I got married. The house didn’t close until after I was married. Would it be considered a marital asset under Oklahoma divorce law?
You must keep a separate bank account on that house if it is to be rented as an investment. All money collected as rent should be put into that account as well as expenses paid on that property should be written on that account. You should not commingle income produced by you or your wife with that...Read more »

You will need to hire an attorney in order to probably get the will from the surviving spouse. As to contesting the will, that attorney after reviewing the will and you telling the attorney any facts you may have as to why it should be contested can best answer that question.

She can try. Depending upon what her boyfriend signed and the lapse of time and whether they lived together and the boyfriend held the child out as his own are all facts that must be explored to determine whether she would be successful or not. As to signing his rights away, there is no such...Read more »

If you have an attorney request him/her to set a date for the final decree.

The date of your divorce is the date the Judge granted it notwithstanding that the decree or an amended decree was filed much later. The amended decree you speak of should reflect in the opening lines the date the Judge granted the divorce even though filed weeks later.
