If dad dies with no will...here's what happens in OK:
In any case, the surviving spouse is entitled to complete ownership of a car owned by the decedent. If the decedent owned more than one car, the surviving spouse has first choice as to which one to pick.
1. the surviving spouse is entitled to one-half interest in the property acquired joint efforts of plus an undivided equal part in the intestate estate not acquired jointly divided with each of decedent's living children and the lawful issue of any deceased child by right of representation
1. Only a will can enable him to disinherit anyone...If no will, your sister WILL GET HER SHARE.
2. She is entitled to his car even tho she has one...that's the law....again if dad wants something different he better make a will!!!!!!!!!
3. Step mom gets 1/2 of joint property, and 1/2 of the property that was dad's alone. You and sis SHARE EQUALLY the other 1/2 of the joint property (ie. dad's 1/2) PLUS 1/2 of property that was dad's alone.
This is the law in OK
