Learn the difference between probate and non-probate assets

The difference between probate and non-probate assets is relatively simple: non-probate assets are jointly held, whereas probate assets are in the decedent’s name only. Examples of a probate asset might be a house, car, bank account or any other asset that’s in the deceased’s name.

Non-probate assets also include assets with a designated beneficiary, as well as assets held in the name of a trust. To learn more about the difference between probate and non-probate assets, speak with one of our probate lawyers in Wabash, IN today.
