What is a health care proxy in Oklahoma?

Should you become incapacitated or are otherwise unable to make health care decisions for yourself, you will need someone to help you. On Oklahoma's Advance Directive for Health Care, there is a space where you can designate a health care proxy. According to the form, both your physician and another doctor will have to determine that you are no longer able to make decisions.

Understanding estate plan expenses

While no one wants to think about it, a fatal accident can occur at any time. To make sure that loved ones are protected, it is important to have an estate plan in place. Yet, many times, people in Oklahoma put this off because of the costs involved. Understanding the expenses associated with estate planning and taking proactive steps can help people overcome this hurdle.

In most cases, though, people have their own reasons for choosing how to distribute assets among their heirs, whether they are financial or personal effects. This also includes the choice to leave someone out.
