I. Executive Summary
Florida probate attorney fees depend on whether the proceeding is Summary Administration – usually the quickest and least expensive – or Formal Administration. Many factors will enter into the fees, including whether the probate is contested, is subject to estate and other taxes, involves the sale of real estate, and requires advice regarding homestead.
It is now common for the decedent to have both a will and revocable living trust. Such cases may require probate of the will and administration of the trust.
