Muskogee Lawyer BlogWhat Are the Requirements for a Will to Be Found Valid Under Oklahoma Law?

A Person Must Have Been Over 18 When Making the Will

attorney in MuskogeeVideo Transcribed:  What are the requirements for a will to be found valid under Oklahoma law?  I’m Muskogee Attorney Eric Strocen, with the Wirth Law Offices, and I’m here to explain. In order for a will to be found valid, a person must have been over the age of 18 when making the will.

They must have understood what they were doing, meaning that they knew that this document was being prepared to dispose of their property after their passing away. Not only that, but they could not have been under any duress or coercion at the time the will was prepared.

These elements must be met all at the same time in order for the will to be validly executed. This prevents further issues after the person has passed away that result in their wishes not being effectuated to the extent that they saw fit.
