Legal Answers
5 Questions Answered

Q. I need a copy of titke58sec, sec 393 OK statute. My dad just passed away and this form is required to access cash.
A: Sorry for your loss. Is the cash in a bank account? If so the form you need may be different and your banking institution should have it. This is not legal advice or intended to be used as such.
Q. My adult children's dad just died. What do they need to do to get things in order? It is just the two of them.
A: This is not legal advice or intended to be used as such. If there is no Willl or Trust then we are probably dealing with intestacy. Real estate, unless titled in a particular manner, would probably require a probate. Creditors, like credit card companies, must be notified of the probate and given an opportunity to file claims. This may be a simple or complex issue. Most attorneys will visit over the telephone at no cost but only to see if they are able to provide you, or your children, services for a fee.
Q. My mother passed 6-30-15,she a burial policy that list her estate as the beneficiary. How can I get funeral paid?
A: If the estate was a beneficiary it may be necessary to open a probate. You may be able to use the procedure for small probates. It sounds like your mother attempted to create a will, often such attempts are ineffective. Any attorney reviewing the documents would expect to be paid. However, many may be willing to visit with you over the telephone for no charge. This is not legal advice or intended to be used as such.
Q. If a house is held in a living trust controlled by three executors, is there a way to sell the property if one wont sell
A: This is a great question. The first thing is to look to the trust document to see if provides for a tie breaker or if it addresses removal of a trustee. The trust may have a "trust advisor" appointed to mediate disputes and/or remove a trustee. If there is waste being committed the beneficiaries may have a cause of action against the uncooperative brother. Assuming that it is a boilerplate document it may not. Unfortunately, the matter may need to be litigated in order to come to a resolution. This is not legal advice or a suggestion for any particular course of conduct.
Q. How do I find out statue of limitations on Financial Exploitation of the Elderly./
A: This does not constitute legal advice. Statutes of limitations may prevent recovery. Your question raises many possible legal issues. But a good starting point is Title 12 of Oklahoma Statutes Section 95(a)(3) which states: 3. Within two (2) years: An action for trespass upon real property; an action for taking, detaining, or injuring personal property, including actions for the specific recovery of personal property; an action for injury to the rights of another, not arising on contract, and not hereinafter enumerated; an action for relief on the ground of fraud - the cause of action in such case shall not be deemed to have accrued until the discovery of the fraud; Also look at Section 94 Person with Legal Disability May Bring His Action within Two Years after Disability is Removed Cite as: O.S. §, __ __ In these cases an important question is whether or not the property can be recovered. Those who financially exploit rarely seem to have anything that can be attached or garnished. Any person entitled to bring an action for the recovery of real property, who may be under any legal disability when the cause of action accrues, may bring his action within two (2) years after the disability is removed.
