The Probate Calculator tool is a free resource provided for general informational and educational purposes only. The calculator is intended to estimate fees based on your assets and is for illustrative purposes only. Every situation is unique and your actual expenses may vary.
Attorneys fees of 1% of the total estate have been used in the calculation. This is an estimate based on average fees for probate administration. The smaller the estate, the larger the percentage is likely to be. Executors of modest estates sometimes opt to navigate the probate process without the assistance of an attorney.
