“Since we agree on how to divide up my mother’s property, can we skip going through any legal proceedings?”

Question:  My mother recently passed away.  She did not have a Will, but all she really had were her personal belongings.  She was living in an assisted living center (not in Dalhart).  She does have quite a bit of money saved in CD’s and savings.  We kept asking her about a Will, and she said that she didn’t want to mess with it and she knew that we (my sisters and I) would split everything up fairly.  One of my sisters is the beneficiary on the CD’s and the savings account, and I was a joint owner of her checking account.
