In this series of blog posts on ancillary probate, we laid out three foundational requirements for an ancillary estate in Oklahoma. These can be restated in 3 helpful summary questions to ask when trying to determine whether an ancillary probate in Oklahoma is necessary and possible:
Question 1: Did the decedent own property in their home state and also in Oklahoma?
Question 2: Was there a probate proceeding or estate procedure in the home state?
Question 3: Can the following be obtained from the probate proceeding or estate procedure in the home state: A) Last Will and Testament (if one existed); B) Order admitting the will to probate, or if there was no will, an order appointing an administrator; and C) Order distributing the estate?
