My FIL passed away a few days ago. We contacted a funeral home in the area (he is in IL, we're in AZ). Dh and his brothers agree on what is to happen with the remains and are next of kin. They know they will have to divide up assets and stuff, but will this need to go through a probate or lawyer, or can they just contact banks and such (for house, car, etc) and have titles transfered or things sold, etc.?

Dh thinks it all has to go through some 3rd party and I'm not sure.
