What Are the Costs to File Probate in Florida?

The cost of probate in Florida varies depending on the size and complexity of the estate. However, as a general rule, expect to pay around 3-5% of the estate's value in attorneys' fees. For uncontested and simple probate, most attorneys will take the matter on a flat-fee basis.

Keep in mind there may also be other costs associated with the probate process, such as court filing fees, executor's commissions, and accounting and legal services.
