Understanding the Probate Process in Oklahoma


Probate is a multifaceted legal process, one in which a deceased person's estate is administered, their property is transferred, and any of their outstanding debts are repaid.

What are the first steps in the probate process?

  • File a petition with the District Court to see if the decedent has left behind a will.
  • The courts then determine if the will is a legally valid document.
  • If the will is valid, a personal representative is chosen to oversee property distribution.

What happens if someone dies without a will? (This is also known as "dying intestate".) The Oklahoma's laws of intestate succession will decide how the property will be divided.

Once a will has been admitted to probate, there will be three months for anyone to file a petition with the courts. Probate might only last those three months, but in other situations, the process could take up to a year and half, even more. Arguments can extend the process significantly.
