Generally, jointly held property passes automatically to the surviving joint owner. It does not become a probate asset so it is not exposed to creditors. However, the situation changes if the creditor attached the property prior to the death of the debtor. Creditors can attach jointly held property while the debtor is living but if a creditor fails to attach prior to the death of the debtor then the property passes to the surviving joint tenant and the creditor is out of luck.
