Is It Possible To Avoid Probate?

Yes, it is possible to avoid probate.

Depending on the particular circumstances of a given case, some or all assets may pass to joint account holders, payable on death beneficiaries, or a spouse under a community property agreement.

If a person dies owning no real estate and having assets of less than $100,000 it is also possible to avoid probate using something called a small estate affidavit.
