Probate Fees – Unique Estate Law Minneapolis

Unique Estate Law handles formal probate fees matters on an hourly basis.  In our continuing effort at offering our clients financial transparency, we guarantee a fair and honest quote for handling a probate matter will be provided BEFORE you hire us. Given the increasing concern about finances, we are willing to offer a flat fee arrangement for simple informal probate matters. These usually involve transferring title to a home from a parent or spouse without any issues or contests from anyone else involved in the estate.

In addition, we understand it may not be possible to pay a full retainer upon hiring us. That is why we offer flexible payment plans that work with your financial resources. If the money is all tied up during the probate, we can sign a simple agreement for you to pay us out of the estate proceeds. Other clients have used a credit card and charged a monthly amount to break up the fees. Let us work with you on a solution.

There may be factors that arise during administration that cause the fee to increase, but we will contact you immediately if we feel the fee will be more than the original quote.  Factors that impact fees are: size and complexity of the estate; disposition of property; relationships among heirs.

Total fees from the opening to closing of an INFORMAL probate generally range from $3,500 – $6,000.  Services include:

  • Representation of Administrators and Executors of Estates;
  • Assistance with opening estate, gathering assets, filing Inventories and Accounts and distributing assets;
  • Consultative assistance (rather than full representation) for small estates,
  • Assisting agents appointed under a Power of Attorney in carrying out their duties;
  • Help with gathering and accounting for assets;
  • Communication with the court, or other members of the family involved in the estate

If we need to file for a FORMAL probate the range increases to $5,500-$10,000 provided there are no complex issues or contests in the case.
