States of emergencies, disasters come and go, but some things never change.  People pass on, heirs and family still need help with transferring assets after death.  The Probate Court is still open, the only way to transfer most assets after death, especially real estate is to get a Probate Court order.  If you are an heir of someone who recently passed away, the Court will still process the transfer of assets into your name, but you will need to file in Court to make that happen.
