Interesting that this only applies to PROBATE. I wonder what the difference is between probate assets and regular assets. Thank you for the help, I will continue my research.

It makes sense, however, if you consider that the primary purpose of the probate court is to provide for a transfer of title to the decedent's assets. If title has already passed by way of joint ownership or beneficiary designation, there is nothing left for the court to do.
