Planning for your future doesn't always mean deciding where you want to go to college, where you want to live or what career path you want to take. For many Oklahoma residents, this means drafting an estate plan. The estate planning processes is often looked at as something that could be put off until later in life. However, it is important to consider your financial, business, tax and health care needs and issues earlier in life.
