Probate question: Does all property go through probate when a person dies?

No. The term “probate estate”” refers to any property subject to the authority of the probate court. Assets distributed outside the probate process are part of a person’s “non-probate estate.” (see transfer of property) There is also an easy way to transfer property to a surviving spouse, property held in Joint Tenancy and life insurance and retirement benefits.
