Probate

Probate is the legal process of transferring assets from the name of a deceased individual into the name of that individual’s heirs.  Probate only applies to assets held at death in the individual’s sole name. Joint assets pass to the surviving joint owner (i.e. husband & wife). Insurance Policies, IRA’s, 401-k’s and other assets that have “beneficiary designations” pass outside of probate, outside of the Will, to the named beneficiaries.
