Im in process of getting our moms (her 3 sons) probated.
Im finding out that if mom had done a TOD or POD or co-owner on the house, that it too would have avoided probate.
In our case, all other assets are non-probate.
We have already split up all cash & personal items except for her main checking acct (now being used as a estate acct to pay remaining bills (only utilities and property tax and house insurance as there are no real debts).
The reality is that if we had had mom do a survivorship deed on the house, it too would have avoided probate.
For small estates, its almost unneccesary to have a will if everything goes to adult kids. There are no issues between us and everything is getting 3way split.
Though technically our estate sale profit of furniture and etc will be mostly mine.
