Probate & Estate Administration: $2,500

When an individual passes away, his or her assets do NOT automatically transfer to the deceased’s heirs. If the deceased dies with a Will, the Will must be submitted to Surrogates court for a legal process known as Probate. Probate is the process of proving that the deceased’s Will is valid. If the deceased died without a Will, the deceased’s estate has to go through a legal process known as Estate Administration. In both cases certain heirs and potential beneficiaries have to be notified; the process is long and complicated.

Our probate attorneys charges $2,500 plus court fees for an UNCONTESTED Will Probate or Estate Administration.  Uncontested means that nobody challenges the distribution of the assets or the appointment of an administrator/executor. If there is a legal dispute as to either, the process becomes contested and the flat fee does not apply. Our flat fee of $2,500 includes the following:

WILL PROBATE

  • Creating inventory of assets;
  • Filing Probate Petition with Surrogates Court;
  • Appointment of Executor named in Will;
  • Advising regarding distribution of assets;
  • Advising regarding filing of taxes; and
  • Advising regarding outstanding debts.

ESTATE ADMINISTRATION

  • Creating inventory of assets
  • Filing Petition for Letters of Administration;
  • Obtaining Letters of Administration;
  • Advising regarding distribution of assets;
  • Advising regarding filing of taxes; and
  • Advising regarding outstanding debts.
  • Closing out the Estate.

Please note that surrogate court fees are based on the estimated value of the estate.  The fees range from $45 to $1,250.  Please further note that the services of an accountant and/or appraiser may be necessary depending on the assets involved.
