Legal Answers
Q. How much does probate costs if the property is under $75k and 1 heir?
A: This would be eligible for summary administration, which my firm handles for $2,345.00 flat fee statewide. You can also file this “pro se” without an attorney.
Q. Death was 9\15\21. How soon does personal representative have to register will at probate court?
A: There is no time limit or requirement for the nominated personal representative to administer the estate. If they fail to act, another party can choose to put the case through probate. If a personal representative has already been appointed, several factors affect the timing of distributions and you would need to provide additional information about the status of the probate case.
Q. What percentage if an estate does a substitute PR get paid?
A: 3%, plus potentially an hourly rate for extraordinary services.
