GRANDPARENT RIGHTS

Visitation rights of non-parents did not exist more than 40 years ago.  Visitation rights, until recently, only applied to a childs parents.  Today, however, every state has created statutes to govern the visitation rights of grandparents and certain other non-parents, such as foster parents, caregivers or step parents.  These visitation laws grant grandparents and these non-parents the legal right to visit a child.

PROBATE

You will have to determine whether your loved ones estate has to be probated.  If there is real estate that was not transferred out of that deceased persons name, then more than likely you will have to  go through probate.  Probate in Oklahoma is a process that can take 6 months or longer to finish.  There are certain requirements in the probate process that we have to follow.  If you want to avoid having to probate your property in the future you would have to make sure and transfer property out of your name for a period of 5 years in order for liens not to be placed on your property should you have to enter a nursing facility and not have a way to pay the cost of such a facility.  It is always good to make an appointment for counseling with an attorney to find out just what you would need to do to avoid probate.
