True cost of Last Will & Testament
How much does it cost to execute a will, and I think there’s a difference between actually executing a will and probating a will to probate, a will happens after somebody passes away.
Executing a will is what you do during in your lifetime inter vivos to actually create the will. So it really depends if you’re going to execute a will while you’re still living. It really depends on where you live in the United States. It varies substantially between different jurisdictions.
You’ve probably even seen online that there are some online places that will allow you to basically download a form and fill out the blanks and execute a will. I will tell you guys while that is extremely inexpensive. It could cost your estate many, many thousands of dollars later on if that form gets it wrong or you fill that form out incorrectly.
