Not all assets have to go through probate

Assets that will not typically have to go through probate include assets in trusts you have established and jointly owned assets, such as bank accounts, that will pass directly to a joint owner if applicable. Other assets typically not subject to probate include insurance policies, 401(k)s, or IRAs for which you should have named a beneficiary.
