Probate Fees


Probate Fees

Explained by Our Walnut Creek Probate Lawyer

Probate is required in California when an individual dies owning assets exceeding $150,000 in their own name. California probate fees are set by statute in the probate code, and they represent the fees that your attorney and personal representative can request. These fees do not include certain special fees or any litigation costs.

The approximate cost for probating an estate is:

Gross Asset Value Minimum Fees*
$200,000 $14,000
$300,000 $18,000
$400,000 $22,000
$500,000 $26,000
$800,000 $38,000
$1,000,000 $46,000
$2,000,000 $66,000

*These are the statutory maximum fees authorized by the California probate code. They do not include special fees or litigation expenses. One half of these fees go to the attorney handling the probate, and one half will go to your administrator or executor.
