How Much Does Probate Cost?

The are two financial components to probate: costs and fees.

Costs are typically the charges for Court filing fees, Publication of the Notices, and the Probate Referee, among other things.

Attorneys' and Administrator/Executor fees are separate. Those fees are set by California Probate Code section 10810 and based on the estate's value. For example:

Estate Value Statutory Fee

$100,000 $4,000
$200,000 $7,000
$300,000 $9,000
$400,000 $11,000
$500,000 $13,000
$600,000 $15,000
$700,000 $17,000
$800,000 $19,000
$900,000 $21,000
$1 million $23,000

An estate valued in excess of $1.0 million up to $9.0 million is 1%.
