Is the Cost of Probate High?

The cost of probate typically involves filing fees with the court, advertising the estate, and filing certain legal documents required by the probate process.

Attorney fees will be incurred for guiding you through the probate process and filing the necessary documents, which may include preparation of inheritance tax returns, federal estate tax returns, or fiduciary returns. Attorney fees will vary based on the complexity of the estate.

Be a good consumer of legal services and talk with your attorney about how the attorney fees will be charged, ie, flat fee, percentage fee, or hourly fee, to determine the cost of probate and what will be the best decision for your case.
