First, I am not an Oklahoma attorney. That being said, I suppose you are the "Appellee" so you must file a brief as the Appellee. Usually, the deadline for filing that brief is 30 days from the Appellant's brief (in this case, the State). And you should be sent a copy of the...Read more »
I am a little confused by this question. Trusts are not instruments that are subject to probate proceedings so I’m not quite certain what is happening here. However, there is no limit to how long a probate can take. Depending on circumstances they can go on for many years.
My dad was diagnosed with last stage heart failure following a massive heart attack. This disabled him from working. Knowing his life would be cut short, he quitclaimed his property to me. Signed, notarized and recorded with the county. The property DOES have a mortgage (specifically, a land loan)... Read more »
I have assumed that the property is in Oklahoma. Creditors would have to establish their claim against the estate through the probate court. If a probate proceeding is not initiated by one of the family members, a creditor could initiate the proceeding. After establishing their claim, they would...Read more »

I'm not certain exactly what the question is here so I will try and answer this generally. There are different types of durable powers. A general durable power gives you the right to make financial decisions for another person at any time whereas a springing durable power would only allow you...Read more »
In May when I called this credit card company they said I was not on account they could not talk to me and would be off my credit and now 4 months later I'm on the magically on the account. Been spareted since Oct. 2016. Filed for divorce in Feb. 2016.
If you filed for divorce in 2016, my first question is why hasn't that been finalized? Nothing should take that long unless you have been trying to reconcile. Next, with the divorce petition you both should have signed an ATI (automatic temporary injunction), which in simple terms freezes...Read more »
An Oklahoma attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for three weeks. As a general matter, if you were injured, it would make sense to seek a free initial consult with an Oklahoma injury attorney. If you were not injured, then the most practical course of action could depend on...Read more »
We are living at different homes and she explicitly said I could sleep with other people, which is saved in a text message. Is it possible for her to attempt saying I cheated on her despite having her permission?
In the majority of divorce proceedings there is an automatic temporary order. This prevents selling, disposing, destroying, etc.... any marital assets. Likewise, insurances must remain intact as well. Even with the temporary order in place a judge may give permission for one or the other party...Read more »
Step Daughter suing deceased's spouse for estate management after spouse sold property to us back in December 2019. We are still in process of purchase. One lot is in deceased's name and two are in both names.
Since you are purchasing from the estate of deceased individual a title company would not close on the sale until such time as the probate court approves the sale or the probate is concluded and the estate is distributed, at which point you would be purchasing from the beneficiaries of the estate...Read more »
my mother passed away in 2013 and didn't leave a will. I have a brother and a sister. i have been paying the taxes on the land and everything since 2010, do i have more right to it then they do? They have not once helped me pay taxes.
If your mother didn't have Will the property would pass according to the intestacy statute. If she was single at the time of her death and all her children were living, then the likely outcome is for the children to share equally. You may have a claim for the...Read more »
By default a child born of a marriage is presumed to be a child of that marriage, therefore any challenge to that has to be brought by a challenging party claiming to have rights. I assume based on your question your husband and the biological father are not one in the same. Therefore, even if...Read more »
Common Law marriage is a grey area in Oklahoma. If someone tells you that it doesn't exist, then they are wrong. It very much exists, just with some different terminology. There are some things that have to be shown to prove that a non-ceremonial union exist and there are many ways to...Read more »
This question is not as easy as step 1 - 2 - 3. Generally, once an adoption is finalized, then it is non-reversible. There are a few exceptions to this rule, however these exceptions are challenging to prove. This is something that you will need an experienced adoption attorney to help you with,...Read more »
It is possible for the state to terminate rights in some cases. However, If you hire an attorney RIGHT NOW and follow all of their advice and all the requirements of the state you will give yourself the best chance of a favorable outcome. It will require doing all the right things and listening...Read more »
him any info. When I looked case up on odcr it says that heirs are determined and "letters of admin sent" and "proof of publishing" has been done. Is my dad supposed to hire his own attorney? He has never received anything from court or sis?
As an heir he should have received notice of the proceedings. Publication can only be considered good notice to a person if the person has searched diligently and cannot locate the heirs. If you believe that his sister should not have been appointed as administrator and that the estate is not being...Read more »
Dad died and his financial planner hands to my stepmother a stock certificate that is still in my paternal grandmothers name. My father had set up a trust and began Funding it - he did not name a beneficiary. She and I learned this together at the office of his planner. My stepmother then says he... Read more »
If the stock remains in the grandmother's name then the stock would be subject to the administration of her estate, not your father's. That being said, if her estate leaves the property to your father, then his estate would come into play. You would need to investigate the administration...Read more »
My 17 year old brother in law ran away from home. His father pressed charges and dropped them acknowledging that he is in his own.

When you say testified, do you mean in court under oath? If that is the case, then I would question why the father still has unsupervised visitation? If you came to me with that claim, I would probably start by calling his attorney and try to get an agreement to adjust the visitation temporarily...Read more »
Dad passed away 2 years ago. He had land that was only in his name. He used his land as collateral for a trailer that is in both he and his wife's name. She went to prison after he passed away and did not make payments on the loan. I saw it in the paper in probate? What do we need to do? This... Read more »
It is not clear if your father's estate has been probated. If he had a will and the will was admitted to probate, his will determines who the property goes to. If he had no will, the property goes by intestate succession. To get good title to land, his estate must be administered. Unless...Read more »
