Does all property have to go through probate when a person dies?

The answer to that is no. There are various elements of property ownership that do not have to go through probate because if you have designated a beneficiary in for example a checking account, you have a joint account, or in a stock brokerage account, you have a joint account, by operation of law that will pass to the joint owner, especially if it is joint tenancy with rights of survivorship meaning that whoever passes, passes it on by operation of law to the individual who is still living.
