Q: Is there some sort of form that can be filled out to get my home out of probate so I can refinance?

1 Answer | Asked in Probate for Oklahoma on
Answered on Feb 11, 2016

I am sorry to hear that your wife passed away. Unfortunately, because the home was not in joint tenancy, it will be necessary to probate your wife's estate in court. Only then can your wife's name be removed from the title so you can refinance. Moreover, if you and your wife have children and your wife did not have a will, the children could be entitled to inherit partial ownership in the house. While you can represent yourself, I highly recommend that you hire a probate attorney. The probate...

Q: Need attorney who could take on a possible pro bono class action against an property management company due to their man

2 Answers | Asked in Landlord - Tenant for Oklahoma on
Answered on Nov 10, 2015

Sorry, but in my opinion your mother doesn't have much of a case, and you are unlikely to find an attorney willing to take the case on a pro se basis (much less as a class action; class actions are much more complex and this fact pattern doesn't seem to merit a class action in any event). Also, you are even less likely to find a willing attorney on this forum; your best bet would be to call attorneys in your area.

Concerning the incidents of pushing, that would be a criminal assault;...

Q: what kind of attorney do we need for long term carbon monoxide poisoning by employer in Oklahoma

1 Answer | Asked in Workers' Compensation for Oklahoma on
Answered on Nov 10, 2015

An attorney who does personal injury litigation.

But in many states workers compensation is an exclusive remedy. This means that a lawsuit against his employer might not be allowed.

Also, CO2 means carbon Dioxide. I believe you mean CO (carbon MON oxide).

Q: can i be charged with a crime if im dating a 16 year old im 22 she lives with me and marriage has been approved

1 Answer | Asked in Criminal Law for Oklahoma on
Answered on Nov 9, 2015

According to this:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ages_of_consent_in_the_United_States#Oklahoma

She is above the age of consent, so no. But normally (if she were under the age of consent) the fact that your engagement to her has been approved by someone (her parents or the court, usually) or that you are living together, would be immaterial.

Q: If i die and leave a house with a mortgage to my son, can he sell it?

1 Answer | Asked in Estate Planning for Oklahoma on
Answered on Nov 5, 2015

Assuming the house is titled in your name alone (and not a trust or joint tenancy), then your son would have to probate your estate in state district court in order to sell the house. In the event that the mortgage was not paid off at the time of your death, the bank could theoretically foreclose on the mortgage. However, they are would be unlikely to do so provided that payments continued to be made. Your son could sell the house in probate and receive the leftover proceeds after paying off...
