If a surviving joint account owner, the son/daughter of the deceased, wishes to share the account funds with siblings (because she understands that to have been the intent of the deceased), may he/she voluntarily turn the funds over to be probated? Would a court allow that? (If a sibling can sue for that to happen, it seems that the court would be happy to avoid a hearing and allow that.)
