My name is***** and I will be helping you with your question today. This is for informational purposes only and does not establish an attorney client relationship.
If the property is not legally included in the trust, it will need to be probated unless the trust was held by you and your ex husband jointly with a right of survivorship. Your name would have to be on the deed for this. In that case, it would pass outside of probate and be able to be placed in your name solely. If this is not the case then the property would have to go through probate according to the laws in your state.
Please let me know if you have any further questions and please positively rate my answer as it is the only way I will be compensated. (There should be smiley faces or numbers from 1-5 next to my answer, an excellent or good rating would be fantastic.)
