Community Property with Right of Survivorship

Primary tabs

Property that is jointly owned by both spouses; and on the death of one spouse their 1/2 share will pass directly to the other spouse without going through probate.

For example, Husband and Wife own a house in a community property state.  Each owns 1/2 of the whole house.  When Husband dies, Wife will take husbands interest, and Wife will own the entire house.
