Providing You with the Effective Representation You Need & Deserve

The city of Chickasha in Oklahoma’s Grady County may only have a population which hovers around 16,000, but many notable past and present individuals have had the privilege of calling this quieter community home. Major league baseball player Terry Humphrey, country music personality Merle Kilgore, children’s author Bill Wallace, and NFL defensive tackle Sam Rayburn were all born and raised in the area.

Like many cities throughout Oklahoma and other “western” states, Chickasha was born from the construction of a post office being built after the completion of the Chicago, Rock Island, and Pacific Railway. The post office was established in 1892 and the town was incorporated a decade later.

Working in the Best Interests of Chickasha Families

The city may not have a lot of modern buildings, but it certainly does have history – just as many of the families in the area do. Families who establish themselves in Chickasha rarely leave the area due to its small-town feel, growing economy, and seasonal temperatures. This is why we at Dane Moore and Associates Law Firm often receive questions from people in the Chickasha area about setting up a “trust”.

What is a Trust?

A trust is an arrangement or an agreement which tells another living person (who will be your trustee) how they are to take care of your property and finances after your death. In the United States, anyone who is over the age of 18 can be appointed as a trustee. Some individuals will choose to appoint their bank or trust company as a trustee, or they even appoint themselves.

What is a Living Trust?

A living trust is one which has been created while you are alive as opposed to one which will be created at your death.

What Items Can Be Included in a Trust?

Mostly anything that an individual owns can be included in a trust. Any personal property or real property can be included and the intention is that these items will be for the benefit of another person.

Another option which many who are considering a trust have, is to place their money, real estate, and personal property into a trust for their own benefit. You can then designate an individual as your trustee to handle your assets should you become impaired in some way. This gives you the peace of mind that you will be taken care of even if something beyond your control takes place.
