Oklahoma Self-Proving Affidavit Form

Create a high quality document online now!

The Oklahoma self-proving affidavit form is a notarized document which can be attached to a Will in order to make it self-proving. A self-proving Will bypasses the step up the probate process where the Will’s witnesses may be called to attest the Will in person. This affidavit contains the sworn statement of the principal signatory (the testator) and two (2) witnesses affirming that the Will was executed willingly and in full capacity by the testator. By having this affidavit attached to the Will, the witnesses will not need to testify in person in probate court when the estate is divested, thus quickening the probate process.
