Oklahoma’s Oldest Law Firm Established in 1893
When you lose a loved one, the last thing you should have to worry about is the complex probate process. At Mitchell DeClerck, our skilled attorneys can guide you through the probate process, taking as much stress out of the process as possible and giving you the time you need to mourn your loss.
From our office in Enid, Oklahoma, and in probate courts across Northwest Oklahoma, we represent executors and administrators who need assistance making sure estates are administered according to the decedent's wishes. We can handle all the paperwork and court filings, and make sure that deadlines are met so you do not have to.
It is common for people to die owning property in other states other than where he or she resided, including:
The property that is owned here in Oklahoma must go through what is called "ancillary probate" in the Oklahoma county where the asset was owned after the rest of the deceased's estate has gone through probate in his or her home state.
If your loved one died without a will, it does not matter how the rest of the estate was divided in that state, the property in Oklahoma must be distributed according to Oklahoma laws. If you are from another state, and your loved one owned property here in Oklahoma, you will need an attorney who is familiar with Oklahoma probate law.
Our lawyers have more than 100 years of combined experience in all types of complex estate planning and probate matters, and they have the knowledge to help you.
