The first step is to determine ownership under the laws of the state where the property is located. Ownership rights are determined by the way the title to the property is titled. If the property is held as Joint Tenancy or Joint Tenants With Rights To Survivorship (JTWRS) the propert passes directly to the other owner(s) and is not subject to probate action; if it is held as Tenants-In-Common the share of the property belonging to the deceased is determined by and subject to probate procedure.

How long do you to be married jointly owned property?

You do not necessarily have to be married to own jointly owned property and even when an individual is married for 60 years he could still keep property separate from his spouse. Property is considered jointly owned if you purchased it together (each contributing), your name is on the property, or in some situations when you are married and you have substantially contributed to the property. If your spouse has kept the property separate by keeping it in his name, only putting his money into it then it will be considered separate.

Is the beneficiary of a will entitled to a share of the decedent's jointly-owned property?

It depends on what the will states. If the will states that you are the sole beneficiary of all of the decedent's property, you will receive whatever share the decedent owned of the jointly-owned property. The decedent's share of the property will become your share. If there are other beneficiaries and the division of ownership is not specified in the will, the decedent's share of the jointly-owned property will be divided equally amongst the beneficiaries. If the will states a specific division amongst beneficiaries (e.g. 1/2 interest to John Doe, 1/4 interest to Jane Doe and 1/4 interest to Bob Doe), then the decedent's share of the jointly owned property will be divided amongst the beneficiaries accordingly. But, the quick answer to your question is that just because someone else who is still alive has a share of the decedent's property doesn't mean that the entire property reverts to that alive shareholder. The decedent's interest in the property will go to his or her heirs in the same proportion that the decedent owned the property when he or she was alive.

No. Joint property with the right of survivorship is a non-probate asset. It may help to think of jointly owned property this way: You both owned the whole property. When the other person died their interest in the property simply vanished. You already owned the property and so you "inherited" nothing.
