In Maine, most decedents must have their estates probated. On occasion, if the person has no real estate or personal property that needs to be passed on to another, then probate is unnecessary, but this is rare.
We can help you with the stress of probating an estate. A simple probate is a flat fee of $3,000 plus the probate filing fee which varies based on the value of the estate. This includes all the filings needed , communication with debtors, the State, the County, and of course with you whenever you have a question related to the estate. If your estate may involve litigation, then the fee will change. Give us a call and we can discuss options with you.
