AngelMay asks,

Would that have to go through probate?
Does it have to go through probate for the husband or wife to get what the other had? It's all very confusing...

Probably nothing as long as everything is properly titled.

Note that I'm single, so I can't hold property jointly. The only way I can pass real estate to an heir without probate is through a trust.
