Why should people do estate planning?
A simple starting point – to protect your assets from the reach of probate court.
Let’s do the math.
The probate attorney fees are set by California statute. The current rates are:
- 4% of the first $100,000 of your estate
- 3% of the next $100,000
- 2% of the next $800,000
- 1% of the next $9 million
- 0.5% of the next $15 million
- + Extra fees for more complicated cases
Another important reason is so that you can control how your estate is allocated after you are dead or incapacitated.
