Cost of Florida Probate

June 6, 2008

Florida Probate costs very based upon they type of probate, type of assets, number of creditors, number of beneficiaries and complexity of the issues involved.

Generally a simple Florida Probate which only involves a homestead is around $1500-$1800 dollars and can take 30 to 90 days on average to complete. This fee is for the legal expenses associated with a Florida Summary Administration where the descendant has been dead for more than 2 years or the assets subject to probate are less than $75,000. A homestead, join accounts, and life insurance are not counted as assets. In addition there will be court costs in the $300-400 range depending on the county and if advertising notice is required or desired.

More complex Florida Probate cases can also be handled on flat fees but many are calculated based upon a percentage of the assets subject to probate + some amount for dealing with the non-probate assets.
