Probate Schedule


SCHEDULE OF ATTORNEY AND EXECUTOR FEES
FOR CALIFORNIA PROBATES

Easy to understand, plain English, FREE REPORT, to guide you through the most common Estate Administration questions; A Survival Guide for Those Left Behind!FREE REPORT

California’s fee schedule for attorneys is found at Probate Code Section 10810 and for executors is at Probate Code Section 10800 and is a somewhat complicated formula. For ease of approximation, a simplified formula can be used. It works for probate estates with a value between $100,000 and $1 million. It is 2% of the probate estate value + $3000. That sum would be the statutory fee for the attorney and the executor would receive an identical sum.

PROBATE ESTATE VALUES TOTAL ATTORNEY AND EXECUTOR FEES*
$100,000 $8,000
200,000 14,000
300,000 18,000
400,000 22,000
500,000 26,000
600,000 30,000
700,000 34,000
800,000 38,000
900,000 42,000
1,000,000 46,000
2,000,000 66,000
3,000,000 86,000
4,000,000 106,000
5,000,000 126,000

*The Attorney receives one-half of this sum and the executor receives the other half. However, often extraordinary fees are allowed which could make this total even higher!
