Probating is the legal process of transferring property following a person's death. You'll receive the letters of testamentary or letters of administration that you need in order to recover estate assets. It also helps you transfer title on real property. Probating customs and laws have changed over time, the purpose of probating has remained much the same: an individual formalizes their intentions as to the transfer of their property at the time of their death (typically through a Will), their property is collected, certain debts are paid from the estate and the property is distributed accordingly.


Probating of a Will = $2,000
if there is a self proving affidavit or available witnesses naming executor costs.
This will give you letters for testamentary you need for real estate, banks, etc.

Probate Without a Will = Call

Will as Muniment of Title = $1,500

Small Estate Affidavit = $1,200
if there is less than $50,000 in assets besides the homestead.

Probating Estate or Probating Real Estate = Call
This will give you Letters of Administration

Independent Administration = $3,500
plus court costs and ad litem fees only if all the potential heirs are in agreement on how to proceed

Dependent Administration - $7,500
plus court costs and ad litem fees
