Legal Answers
Q. In Oklahoma, do you have to have an attorney to file a Quitclaim Deed to transfer real property to a family member?
A: No. There is no legal requirement that a quit claim deed be prepared or filed by an attorney. However, people often do no complete even a statutory form correctly. Also, it is generally considered the unauthorized practice of law for someone who is not a party to the transaction to prepare it. In short, it is better to have an attorney prepare it in most cases.
Q. What is time limit to file for probate in Oklahoma
A: No there is not a time limit. Also, a Will must be produced. Title 58 Oklahoma Statutes Section 24 states: 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. Section 108 states: If the person named in a will as executor, for thirty (30) days after he has knowledge of the death of the testator, and that he is named as executor, fails to petition the proper court for the probate of the will, and that letters testamentary be issued to him, he may be held to have renounced his right to letters, and the court may appoint any other competent person administrator, unless good cause for delay is shown.
Q. Oil rights
A: Most often this could be handled on a flat fee basis. Two or more probates can be combined into a since case. Most attorneys will quote you a rate over the telephone but are reluctant to provide online quotes.
