Updated September 07, 2022

An Oklahoma last will and testament is a legal document used for estate-planning purposes in which a testator (the person to whom the will belongs) sets forth into writing how they would like their property to be distributed among selected beneficiaries upon their death. A will allows the testator to record instructions regarding the after-death distribution of their real and property, life insurance policies, digital assets, fiduciary accounts, cash-on-hand, and much more. Through making a will, a testator will name beneficiaries of their estate; some of the common individuals considered beneficiaries include spouses, children, friends, and even charitable organizations.

Will documents must be signed by the testator in the presence of two (2) or more competent witnesses in order to be legally binding in Oklahoma. Both witnesses must also provide their signatories on the document. Though optional, a will can be acknowledged by a state-authorized notary public to further protect its legality. This document may be changed or revoked at the decision of the testator.
