Do all wills need to go through probate?

The answer is YES if the heirs and beneficiaries wants to legally own properties and assets according to the will and NO if they do not care about legal recognition of what they inherit.

There is no obligatory requirement that a will or property go through probate, but if the decedent owned property that is not arranged specifically to avoid probate, there is no way for the beneficiaries to obtain legal ownership without it. There are some exceptions to this, some countries allow a family to own property in a decedent’s name if they continue to pay taxes and do not sell it.
