OKLAHOMA CITY - When a loved one passes, many families get wrapped up in the details of the funeral.

Once the funeral is over, the families have to deal with their loved one's estate.

If you don't have a will, state law can decide what happens to your belongings.

According to Oklahoma law, spouses would get half of the estate while the other half would go to children, parents or siblings.

The bottom line is that you should have a will to prevent any fighting or legal battles in the future.
