The probate process is designed to prove who should inherit property left behind by a deceased individual. It often involves an executor going to probate court to demonstrate the validity of a will. Every state has its own set of probate laws, and Oklahoma is no exception. The probate process is complicated. The liquidation of assets in the estate, for example, may need to be handled in a manner approved by the court. When not handled correctly, beneficiaries may be deprived of property and gifts that rightfully should be theirs.
